To The Class Of 1950 

For the fifty-seventh consecutive year the Massachusetts State 
College Collegian has the opportunity to greet a new cbuu at RISC, 
Uut this year the welcome is double. This year there are two new- 
parts to MSC— a freshman class at Amherst and one at Deveni. 

However geographically distant Amherst and Deveni may be, 

both lace essentially the same problems and are striving toward 
the same goals. Amherst is brimful! of students trying to make 
their places in the college community, or searching for the niches 
they hurriedly left three and four years ago. Amherst is pulsing 
to start out again, to revive the old and bring in the new, to stand 
up on its eighty-four-year-old feet and keep stepping. 

Devena broke all records in being established. It is full of stu- 
dents trying to make their place in a new'college community. 
Devena is pulsing to begin its own traditions, to build up its own 

The going will be tough this year at both parts of MSC. Devens 
is operating with only the basic educational facilities until altera- 
tions can be made and problems of shortages solved. Students at 
Amherst must endure cramped living quarters and crowded class- 
rooms until the new dormitories are finished and the long-awaited 
building program realized. Surely such striving for education is 
a hopeful sign for a world that must pull itself together and begin 


To the MSC freshmen at Devens and to those at Amherst, 
welcome. May your living quarters be comfortable and youi; room- 
mates congenial. May your textbooks be simple and your courses 
guts. Here's for a wonderful year at MSC ! 

From Other Editorial Pages 

Campus In The Camp 

"An educational departure as sensible as it is radical is about 

to be made at Fort Devens .... 

"Here 18 the answer, so adequate that already other states are 
imitating it, to the problem of the high school graduate, now a 
veteran, who wishes a higher education and has not been admitted 
to another college. 

"We say another college advisedly. This is a part of Massa- 
chusetts State, just as truly as the attractive buildings in Am- 
herst. What is more Important, it is part of Massachusetts State 
in the substantial quality of its requirements and the education 

it will offer." 

— from Boston Traveler Editorial, 

Sept. 14, 1946 

They Can't Get In 

"Massachusetts has a State College at Amherst. Its students 

number just over 2,000. This year 100 freshmen were admitted. 
Of these. 300 were men or older boys, 210 of them G.I/s, and the 
others 90 'civilian boys'. There were also 100 girls admitted. 

"Last June from the 259 public high schools in the Common- 
wealth about 30,000 boys and girls received diplomas after pur- 
suing their studies for the entire course. There were more girls 
than boys, the ratio being 1 1 girls to nine boys. 

"Massachusetts State maintains a high standard for admission, 
having a college board standing. An applicant is supposed to he 
readily received if in the first third of the class and able to pass 
the tests set by the state college. There were 91 boys admitted 
and exactly 100 girls. 

"This was not by any means the number desiring to enter. By 
last March there were 200 applicants and then no more were con- 
sidered. It is evident that many fine youngsters face closed doors." 

— from an Editorial by Uncle Dudley 
Boston Globe. Sept. 23, 1946 

i Befon enti ■ ing into todaj - d 
cussion, let ui atulate th 

female* who continue i to look 
ladylike during the war pears). 

\s the sun sinks slowly in the west 

and the elouda float majestically 
overhead, we once again approach 
the beautiful Massachusetts state 
College campus. The place looks just 

about the same, and we wonder if 

anything has changed. There's Dra 
per Hall over there with the dog- 
. atcher's wagon In front, and to our 
left Mem Hall and the library. As we 
wander o'er the campus we see some- 
one approaching the figure draws 
near, and we discover Egad, gad- 
zooka, zounds, and other ejaculations 
of intense amazement. It can't bet, 
but it is! A female!!? But this is ao1 
the kind of girl that slunk over the 
walks last year, clad in dungarees and 
sweater with a look of despair on her 

face. This tempting, delectable mor- 
sel is actually wearing girls' clothing ; 
her hair is combed into a shining 
fluffy mass, and from her Don Juan 
plastered lips one word oozes dream- 
ily and slithers into the ether. And 
what is this word which lias caused 

~uch a change in MSC coeds? You can 
easily guess "Men". 

Yes. Mass State is now predom- 
inantly male, and do those co-eds love 
it. For five long years most of them 
have been living in a daze, hoping, 
praying, breathlessly awaiting the 
days when they would again be In the 
minority. During that time men be- 
came hunted creatures; male students 

at Amherst High had to tie given po- 
lice protection after 8:00 p.m.; "The 

Well of Loneliness" became a sought- 
after book. Now, however, all that 
Is done with, and the girls are happy 

again, ft'i not that they've given up 
ehaaing men alto-ether, but just pub- 
licly. It all boils down to the old pre- 
war adage about the male pursuing 
! the female until she catches him. 

Rut now to net hack to that shapely 
Creature who approaches us. As she 
comes nearer and nearer, our eyes 
become more glazed until she passes, 
and picking ourselves off the ground 
we continue on our bewildered way. 
Things have changed, after all. 

Before we leave you, just a word of 
warning to the males. Remember the 
old adage — (slightly changed) — "A 
rose by any other name smells".

tempti to make op for the Ion at 

Hates last Saturday. The Hay Stat 
ers were the victims of just too 
man9 bad breaks as Batei capitalized 
t«, eek out a 6 to verdict. Bates re- 
covered a State fumble On the latter's 
80 yard line. From there on, with the 
aid of few Stat.- penalties, Bates 
pushed over their only score. 

With a fame under their belts, 
Coach Hergeaheimer and his assistant 
coach Tommy Kck, feel that the team 
will prove more than a match for the 
visitors from Bowdoin. If nothing 
rrmre, Saturday's defeat brought to 
light some of the potentialities of the 
current State pigskin squad.

are as follows: Class of '47; George

Sigma Delta Tau Tops 
With Average Of 79.37 

Again the mighty Senior class baa 
shown that it has acquired some de- 
gree of intelligence since enrolling in 
their freshman year. When last 
year's second semester averages were 
worked OUt, the class of '46 came first 
with M.66; followed by the Class of 
•IT with 79.5. The Class of '48 had an 
average of 77.2 and the Class of »49 
was last with 74.67. 

With the return of the veterans to 
gUte campus the women no longer 
have the high averages thai they did 
during the war. The men proved 
themselves tops in scholarship when 
they made an average of 78.01, while 
the women have an average of 77.1. 
The college average is 77.41. 

Sigma Delta Tau was first among 
sororities with an average of 79.37, 
followed by Kappa Kappa Gamma 
with 78.97 j Sigma Kappa 78.!*:?; Chi 
Omega 78.88; Kappa Alpha Theta

Bowdoin Polar Bears Frozen 11-8 
As M S C Marches 77 Yards To Win 

The Maroon and White gridmen 
e into the win column last Sat- 
urday by edging out Bowdoin College, 
11-8, in the final quarter of a tussle 
which featured three safeties. At 
half time the Statesmen suffered an 
disadvantage, but, sparked by 
Jenkins, Fienman and Estelle, and 
aided by Dame Fortune, plowed 
through the Bowdoin Bears in the 
second half and sent the visitors 
home defeated. 

A bad pass from the Bears center 
was fumbled in the end zone, giving 
State a 2-0 lead in the first quarter. 

Coach Hargesheimer's Bay Staters 
were thrust deep into their own ter- 
ritory by a long Bowdoin punt early 
in the second quarter. The Bay Sta- 
then proceeded to duplicate the 
Bowdoin safety, and the score was 
evened up, 2-2. Speedy running by 
the Rear's backfieldmen and a Gillen 
to Pobie aerial enabled Bowdoin to 
tally late in the quarter. An attempt- 
ed kick for the extra point was 
blocked by State end John Keough. 
With but a few seconds of play re 
maining in the first half, a Bowdoin 
threat was repelled when fullback 

Charley L'Esperance intercepted a 
Bowdoin pass on the State 2 yard 

Two Bowdoin fumbles recovered 
by Statesmen Estelle and Ryan in 
that order, followed by an end run 
by Johnston gave the Maroon and 
White possession of the hall on the 
visitor's 6 yard marker. Line plunges 
by Lee and Fienman failed to pro- 
duce a State score, as the Bears with- 
stood a goal line attack. Bowdoin at- 
tempted to kick out of danger, but 
the kick was blocked for the second 
State safety and the third of tho 
game, as the third quarter came to 
a close. 

A fifteen yard penalty for rough- 
ing the kicker was ruled against 
Coach Hargesheimer's charges gi\- 
ing the visitors possession on the 
State one yard line, as the final 
quarter got underway. Dame For 
tune smiled once again on State a- 
Bowdoin fumbled on a line plunge 
Sullivan and McDonough of Mas

diner parking places present complications dlfficul for th^ MSV«W 
dazed eight-o'clcKk mind to resolve. It's true that the lack of a 
shl walk along the west side of North Pleasant Street ts a dan- 
gerous situation, but this is no reason for students to expose their 
backsides to traflk sneaking up behind them. 

Here are a few simple rules for those who wish to stay in Am-

1. If you travel on foot, look out for the cars. They re usuall> 

bigger than you are. 

2. If you go by bike, remember that such contraptions general^ 

have brakes.

4. If you must walk in the road, stay on the left side so you can 

see what's going to hit you. 

5 If you have a car, why burn up all your rubber the first month 

of school? It might come in handy later. It might also be a good 

plan to fish the traffic regulations out of the wastebasket.

Our Own College 

At a guess, no state is less conscious of its State College than 
Massachusetts. This is partly a tribute to a college SO well managed 
lh;tl u ^ never been a stormcenter, partly the result of a policy 
which seemed intent on keeping our state college a small college, 
after the private college pattern. 

But a new day is dawning for Massachusetts State College ill 
Amhe.-t It has 2000 students now. Three and four times that 
munber may be heating at its doors a year from now. The college 

T ■ i'um'ntlv submitted budget calls for a $5,003,000 building 
program. This program is vitally necessary and extraonmanlv 
„ Sest when compared with what other i atea have done thr ugh 
the years Coupled with the acceptance of its budget should be a 
realistic survey of state-supported hg^er education in Mtssaelu- 
etts, to make certain that the money aWi «y being snent is going 

Wfl wonder, many of u.s, whether it 
yvmj just a fairy tale memorised too 
well from our youth, or whether those 
wonderfully lazy, careless, idyllic days 
when the campus of Mass State was 
he kingdom <<f heaven on earth, when 
we breathed the sweet clean air of 
academic irrev. 'lance, when we flexed 
our muscles merely to admire our 
strength, we wonder whether these 
things really existed. We wonder, but 
only vaguely and with no great effort, 
for we know they are lost to us now. 
Our youthful fantasies were stolen 
from us alonn with the realities, and 
it is unimportant which was which 
for they are both gone. 

We have learned to value security 
of mind and body above absolute. Ir- 
responsible freedom, and WC are ready 
to accept whatever responsibilities 
are necessary to achieve this security. 
We retain our faith in Jehovah or 
Buddha or Mohammed or Karl Marx, 
but we have seen that these guardians 
<»f our destinies allow evil and in- 

without any aid during the entir< 
game. He needed B water-boy, no 
Maroon Key member served in that 
capacity. He needed towels fo:' the 

players, programs for his coaches 
and other incidentals necessary to tlv 
successful management of ■ football 

game. The Maroon Key did not, at 
any time during the game, furnish 
this harried, overworked managei 
from Bowdoi I with any aSststaUM 


I, as manager of MSC's lootba'.' 

team, with many duties of m ' 0W 
ha«l to try to fulfill the demands of 
the visiting manager. I was unable to 
do these tasks as I would have like. I 
No visiting manager should undergo 
an experience like this one sgain 
He could not have formed a very fa 
vorable impression of our ath'etic 
department, or our school. 

The big question is, "Where wan 
the Maroon Key? In the stands en 
joying the game?*' 

Three member.-, of the Maio. Kev 
justice to flourish alongside justice ^ exettsed. and these member 

and goodness, and thus we have come • .. 

to know that we are expected to exert 
ourselves to some degree in order for 
our desires to be realized 

know who they are. The others are no' 
and can not be excused. They walk 
around campus wearing those beauti 

r desires to M realise* h jarki . ts nf th)1 Ma „ )( „, 

Above all else, we have learned „ ,. , . , th) . _ ork 

that there is a price to pay for th* 
Bunlighl which generates life -a price 
immeaaureably greater than that 
charged by any electric power com- 
pany — and that if we lapse in our 
payments, the fuses will explode as 
they did on Hiroshima and we will 
be left in darkness. 

We have learned our lessons well; 
they are etched into our minds. Wher- 
ever we Ro, they burn our conscious- 
ness, reminding us that we must work 
and fight for life or we are surren- 
dering to death. 

We are not naive enough to believe 
that the troubles of an entire world 
can be resolved in a tiny corner of 

signed rooms at North College wi 

horribly surprised upon their arn 
to learn that there were six men 
each room. Of course this didn't I 
them, they claimed, as they untangled 
themselves from the floor. 

The next evidence of crowded <■ 
ditions was on registration day, w 
lines wound around and around I 
drill hall, causing some students to 
wonder if they u-eren't in a bttttei 
meat line. Since then, long line 
the bookstore, people piled two >\, 
in classes, and mangled bodies found 
on the C-Store Door have all tx • 
tragic indications of the slightly 
crowded conditions. 

But, you say, all this must tun 
be ironed out some day. Let us t. 
vently hope that this will be the C 
Hut until then we shall still B] 
most of our spare time running 
around trying vainly to find what be- 
came of our English class whic'i WSJ 
originally scheduled for StockbridRe 
' Hall, later changed to Wilder 11 1 
and which will probably end Up 
the Chapel belfry. For the first tinv 
we begin to wonder if Doctor To 
wasn't right when he predicts 1 the 
decline and fall of th.' world civil iza 

Ye>, o ice upon a time (not SO 
long ago) there was peace and quid 
on the MSC campus. Oh, happy dan 
they must have been.

that goes with the wearing of on • of

The point of all these rhetorical 
questions is merely this: the Quarter 
lit needs manuscripts. 

Would that this sentence might be 
printed in red letters a block hi^h! 
The need for new marusrripts of al' 
types and OH all subjects is urgent 
Nor is it a need that will be suffice I 
with the literary efforts of a few in 
dividuals; it is a persistent med, a 
never-ending requirement for moie 
and more material. 

This year especially, when the edi- 
tors of the Quarterly, official under- 
graduate literary magazine, plan to 
publish three, possibly four, more is- 
sues, is the demand for materia! 
greatest. A magazine cannot be pub- 
lished without contents— stories, ar- 
ticles, poetry and the Quarterly'* 
only source of material is the stu- 
dent—you! We need your "brain 
children", we want your cooperation 
in contributing your work to the 
Quarterly. We know that by the time 
you are mature enough to attend 
college, you have overcome the ado- 
lescent, pseudo-shy, "coax me" atti 
tude that prompts th» "Oh, / con 1 ' 
never write anything good enoigh!*' 
excuse. True, th? chorees ar slim 

that we will find a budding Heming- 
way or' a second Hillay among our 

contributors but neither wa« Th< 

Ihdiii, inn! Full ,,i th, Roman Km 
pire accomplished In ■ day! 

Belatedly, here are a lew fact- 

about the Quarterly yon should know. 
The Quarterly is the official under- 
graduate literary magazine on cam 
pus. It appears four tunes annuall ■. 

and is concerned with the publication 

of articles of literary merit. There 
are no limitations on subject matter 
any research report, essay or ex- 
position as well as fiction and poetry, 
will he eagerly accepted and thor- 
oughly considered. Above all. com 
petition is not open t>> English majors 
alone, but to uininii, in umj field 01 
major. We are anxious to reach as 
many people as possible, being a cam- 
pus wide independent organization. 

So, if you have an idea, vret it down 
on paper and hand it in to the Quar- 
ttrljt as soon as possible. For vo i r 
convenience, all manuscripts may be 
placed in I>r. Goldberg's mai'bix in 
Old Chapel. All will be carefully pe 
rused, but typewritten manuscripts 
will be given first consideration. Un- 
acceptable material will be returned to 
the author; accepted material will be 
considered for publication in a forth- 
coming issue of the Quarterly. Re 
i member, there is no time limit on 
j contributions-- inspiration knows nf)

and frequently. You've nothing to 
lose and everything to gain! Help

Te the Student Bad} 

I've been WStching the Mass. State 
football team practice on Alumni 
field each afternoon. I wish I could 
say the same for most of my class 
mates. Whether intentionally or not, 
athletics here at MSC have been 
greatly deemphaaised in the past 

and still is. The students are even 

more responsible for thia state than 

are the college officials. More stu 

dents than ever are crowding our 

dormitories but as few as ever ar. 

on the sideline! each afternoon. Even 
at the opening home football game 
there was a lotieeable deficiency of 
MSC students. Those hoys need and 

deserve every bit of lupport we can 

give them. If we, ourselves, aren't 
able to cavort 0»1 the gridiron, at least 
let us get behind those who can and 
are willing. Let US tell them that we 
are all for them. Let us let them know- 
that i list as they are anxious to have 
State gain an athletic reputation, so 
are we or are we'.' 

To illustrate the power of an atli 
letic reputation, look at what a superb 

football team has done for Boston 

College. A few years ago it was a- 
little recognize! 1 as MSC, perhaps less 
so; but, through the means offered 
by football, B. C, has come to be one 
of the most respected schools not just 

in Massachusetts or in New England, 

but in the entile nation. Academicall v 
it may have leaf t" offer than has 
State it was football that produced 

the miracle 

Let US he honest with ourselves. 
Isn't it true that we are all anxious 

for Msc to faj,, world fame and per 

haps become a uni versity'.' "Sure", we 
all say; but instead of doing some 
thing about it, we just sit back in our 
easy chairs and talk about it. It 
wasn't talk that won this last war; 
nor will sitting back and talking 
produce any miracles for State. 

I've watched our football team both 
in practice and games, and I assure 
you, the only obstacle preventing this 
team from rising from the category 
of a fair team to an excellent team 
is you, the student body. Let's al! 
get behind those boys and you will 
be surprised.

Coach Derby 4 ! crosscountry sggre 

gation, having eked out a victory over 

a reputedly good Northeastern team 

last Saturday, will loiirney to \\,,. 
cester this coining Saturday to take 
on a not exceptional Worcester I'oly 
tech squad. <>n the strength of then- 
win over Northeastern last week, the 

Staters should be favorites to win, 
since the Teehmen have shown noth 
ing to date to warrant any great f< ar. 
They lost to Springfield by a large 
mat, 'in in their first meet of the yeai. 

The Statesmen will be led by Louie 
Clough, who is taking up where he 
left off last season in running, Alec 
Campbell, who finished second in las' 
week's affair, and Mill Howes, who 
took seventh position Saturday. Coach 
Derby was counting on I»ick Wells 
to run this Saturday, but Wells will 
be attending a more important occa 
sion, his marriage. The other four 
boys who will make up the team for 
Saturday's meet will come from a 
group of six including Dave I'imentel, 
Paul Smith, Hon Thatcher, Carl 
Mricknell, Joe Hilyaru, and Karl 

The chief man that State will have 
to watch for Tech is Brown, a two 
miler in track, who ran all over his 
opposition in a meet here last spring.

shortage of educational facilities 
that the present generation has to 
face. The State of Massachusetts i • 
confronted at present with the in 
ability to place a large number of 
students In an adequate college, But 
this shortage of college space is tem- 
porary and economic changes will 
eventually solve the problem. 

The College at Devens which has 
I860 returned GI's was established 
in record time. The faculty of 122 
was chosen from some of the best 
educators in the United States. Gov- 
ernor Tobin said that this college 
was one of the attempts to solve the 
school shortage and that the m i: 
will receive an education as good as 
that here in Amherst. 

"Our government is organized to 
serve the people of the United State*

be government control over inflati <r 
during this period of reconversion. 
If inflation goes any higher than at 
present, the people will find them 
selves in a crackup similar to that 
of 1929. America has learned its les 
son and the problems will be met hy 
the American people." 

The Governor concluded with t 
note that the students in the colleger 
today are more serious-minded than 
were their fathers or mothers. The 
students will meet the problems of j

All Or Nothing 

A.8 the Kills of the class of 1950 blossom out in the familiar 
fivshman tarns, the old question Of the value of hazing arises 

unco more. "What good is it?" many ask. What's the point of the 
tarns and placards, of hopping the numerals, of repeating all the 

required nonsense? 

Defenders of hazing are quick to point out the advantages ot 
the system. Hazing, they say, gives the freshmen a feeling of he- 
longing to MSC. It makes them learn the college songs and cheers 
and helps thern to overcome some of their initial self-conscious- 
ness- It binds them together as a group, and puts them in their 
place as the youngest members of the "college family". 

Opponents of hazing are quick to counter that it is an unnec- 
essary evil, a waste of time and effort. The first few weeks of 
school are confusing enough to the new student without adding 
needless complications. They argue that there are more pleasant 
ways of getting acquainted and learning the songs and cheers. 
Students old enough to come to college should be mature enough 
to put aside such high school sport and concentrate on more seri- 
ous college work. 

If the half-hearted show the freshmen and sophomores are now 
putting on is an example of hazing, let's do away with it. The 
class of '47 has vivid memories of one whole week of concentrated 
hazing plus six weeks of tarn-wearing, numeral-jumping, etc. They 
will always remember the indignities of proposing to boys in the 
58th, singing solos while perched on C Store tables. The resem- 
blance between this and the present hazing is purely coincidental. 
This editorial is not deciding that hazing is either good or bad. 
It is just pointing out that the colorless hazing now going on is a ^a^**^ % Dorm and 
pretty poor substitute for the real thing. If we must have hazing, | sorority houses open from Uijm> 
let's make it mean something. It should be "all, or nothing at all"! Tuesday, October 29. Dorm and 

sorority houses open from 1-6:90.

Recognition of the outstanding 
contributions by colored entertainers 
has been w on without the use of 
such ihamefttl devices as Bolden felt 
compelled to employ. Paul Robson

the "Uncle Tom" role and "Uncle 
Tom" mannerisms. 

The colored people of America are 
looking, not backward, but forward 
This is exemplified in the Struggle 
to enact the Fair Employment Prac- 
tices law In Massachusetts and SI 
shown by the vindication of the de- 
findants in the Columbus, Tennessee 
trial. Joining the colored people in 
the struggle to obtain the rights 
guaranteed by law but denied by 
practice will be all Americans who 
value our democratic heritage. 

The cause of reaction, the camp of 
Bilbo, Rankin and Talmadge, was 
the gainer by Friday night's demon- 
stration. Mr. Bolden is certainly old 
enough to be aware of the signifi- 
cance of his remarks. "Humor" oi 
this calibre would be in place before 
an audience of Southern Bourbons, 
hardly suitable in the halls of an 
institution like our college. 

Future programs should, by all 
means, include colored artists. Com- 
mittees arranging such concerts 
should ascertain that these artists do 
not discredit their people, but truly 
represent them.

Tops' Concert 
Delights Audience

Music iu a light vein was the en- 
tertaining theme of the Collegian 
Pops Concert last Thursday night. 
The delightfully friendU atmosphere 
provided by the entertainers and by 
the refreshment periods during the 
intermissions gained another success 
for the history of the concerts. 

Chamber music from the strings 
of the College Trio composed the 
first act. Milton Aronson, violinist, 
Marion DeRonde, cellist, and I'res- 
eott Barrows, pianist, skillfully sup- 
plied the traditional light classical 
rhythms of a Pops concert. 

In sharp contrast followed Har- 
ry Hidden, a Tti-year-old negro with 
a clever novelty act. His talents cov- 
ered every line from singing, play 
ing the piano, and dancing, to a dra 
matte rendition of "Gunga Din". But 
it was really the happy, brave sir 
of the old man that endeared him to 
the audience. 

With such a name as the Society 

for the Preservation and Encourage- 
ment of Barber Shop Quartets, 
Singing in America, incorporated, 
the Tri-City Four, a top Northamp- 
ton delegation from this society, 
could not help but win our praise.

"Hey Mister, You Can't Park There", 
We Hear As Campus Cop Patrols Beat 


You cm take Tommy Koran'i word 
for it, the parking situation at the 
College has reached ■ critical point. 
The genial campue policeman gravely 
shook his head over ■ cup of coffee 
(with two lugara) in the College Store 
and declared, "Th.- trouble is that 
there are more care and leea parking

that the present group of students is

example, there was only one student

entire group of 2,<><><» who went

the fact that we now have a larger

BecaUM of the crowded conditions, 
it is now more than ever necessary 
that traffic regulations are strictly ob- 
served, especially between the hours 
of X a.m. and .". p.m., when the number 
of students and staff members on the 
campus is the greatest. Tom em- 
phasizes the point that the rules are 
not intended to annoy persons with 
cats on the campus, but are instead 
aimed to benefit and protect all. A 
copy of the traffic regulations can be 
obtained in the Iran's Office, and is 
also reprinted in this issue. 

Among the most important of the 
regulations is the one forbidding road-

explained with a grin. Perhaps some-

relating his experiences. 

Finishing his coffee, Tommy became 
serious. "If the parking situation gets : 
any worse, we'll have to start putting |

If the request to operate a car on

Higher aims for veterans' educa- 
tion, support for the campaign to 
erect a War Memorial Building, and 
the goal of a University of Massa- 
chusetts were urged by Assistant 
Professor Frederick S. Troy at the 
first meeting of the MSC Veterans- 
Association, October 10, at Memorial 

In his address, Mr. Troy warnel 
against the narrow view, the char- 
acteristic "grimly business-like" atti- 
tude of many ex-servicemen, and 
pointed out the danger of neg'eet of 
intellectual interests, the subordina- 
tion of cultural values. 

Two officers of the Vets" Club 
Adjutant Howard Grout, and Com 
mander Robert Lowell discussed past 
and future aspects of the veteran.-,' 
activities. Ircludcd among the pro 
posed activities were plans for a 
cooperative to pool the purchasing 
power of the married vets. Also af- 
fecting the family men in the stu 
| dent body was the plan to form a 
Vets' Wives Club, to deal with the 
establishment of a nursery. Lowell 
pledged continued efforts by the as- 
sociation to achieve university status 
for the college. Going beyond the 
local scene, the speaker emphasized 
the need to take active measures to 
preserve the peace. Concluding with 
a plea for participation, by all the 
vets, in shaping the policy of the 
organization, Lowell urged the audi- 
ence to join the Veterans Associa-

State College may also be considered a

the community at MSC should conduct 
its own drive to raise funds for the 
needy and worthwhile organizations. 
In the past the College has spon- 
sored a Charity Drive in the fall of

for one or more worthy organizations. 
Again this year a commttee of stu- 
dents and faculty have realized the 
need for a drive of this type and plans 
are being drawn accordingly. 
All One Drive 
A point that the committee would 
like to make clear is the fact that the 
Campus Drive this year will be the 
one and only charity drive of the year. 
A charity fund will be established and 
held in reserve for future needs of 
worthy organizations who conduct 
their national drives at a later date. 
At that time, the Campus Chest will 
make a contribution from the students 
and faculty of MSC. The committee 
will dispose of all of the fund at the 
end of the school year. No money will 
be carried over until the next season. 
The Campus Chest Committee is 
made up of students of last year's 
group With additional students who 
have shown interest in the drive. In- 

terested members of the faculty 
also members of the group. 

Everyone realizes the need for fui 
throughout the United States, • 
world. The War has ravaged the coun- 
tries of Europe and the students 
foreign countries need the help of • 
students of the United States, of M>> 
As members of an American Coll. 
the people at MSC should be Willi | 
to aid their fellow students through*. .• 
the war-torn world The drive t: - 
year will stress the fact that stud, 
of the world are appealing for h. p 
from the students of MSC. 

For what organization or groupi 
money should be solicited is always a 
question that confronts the Cam); u 
Chest Committee. In other years, 
committee has decided on a particular 
organization or group of organizat; 
for which funds should be solicit, d. 
However, many contributors often 
press the opinion that they would pre- 
fer to have their contribution gi\<; 
to a particular group. Therefore, the 
committee wishes to conduct a poll 
of opinion among the students of 
college as to the groups they wish to 
contribute. Below is a questionnaire 
which students are asked to check and 
deposit at the Collegian Office. 

From an appraisal of th. 
turned questionnaires the Campus 
Chest Committee may then decide 
upon the organizations to he included 
in the 1946 campaign.

Louie Clough Leads MSC Team To Win 
34 - 23 In WPI Cross - Country Race 


The State cross-country team and 
;e Clough remained undefeated so 
far this season as MSC routed the 
.ster Tech harriers last Saturday 
g| Worcester, 2.'i-.'i4, over the Boynton 
Hill course. It was the second succes- 
victory for both the team and 
■ugh ran the rugged 3-mile 
course, which is composed almost en- 
y of uphill terrain, in 18 minutes, 
17 seconds Dave Brown of Tech was 
nd, slightly over one-half minute 
nd Clough. Alec Campbell of State 
flushed fourth and Pierce, an MSC 
darkhorM who had not even run the 
te COUTM until last week, came 
in a surprising fifth. Pierce was the 
nth-listed man on the State's 
squad but upset everyone's calcula- 
tions by ending up third best on the 
■quad Saturday. Captain Pill Howes 
finished sixth, and the fifth State man 
Joe Hilyard, who came in eighth. 
Brown shot into the lead almost at 
the start of the grind with Clough two 
tiona behind him. However, Clough 
red into second place in short order 
I gained steadily on Brown, who 
dentally won WTI's meet with 
'iuard Academy the week be- 
fore, On the second hill, probably the 
L- melting which the State team 
or will run up against all year, 
Igh forged ahead. In fact, every 
runner but him walked most of the 
up the hill, thus enabling Clough 
pile up a long lead. He finished 
!•"<" yards in front of Brown. 
Th.- summary: Clough, MSC, 18:47;

Today the Statesmen will engage 
•Rally a one-man team at Hart- 
ford when they meet Trinity at 4:15 
The Trinity team as a whole does 
• appear formidable at all, but on 
the team is one man, Ed Lemieux, who 
will undoubtedly give Lou Clough a 
rtiff fight for first place. Lemieux was | 
New Kngland intercollegiate cross- 
country champion last year while 
running for WPI and was also two- 
Bile champion two springs ago. He 
finished first in the Trinity meet 
against Amherst last week, which 
Trinity lost by the one-sided count of j 
-"-4 ■'!. However, Lemieux appears to '• 
be the only man on the Trinity team 
who is worth worrying about. In the, 
Amherst meet the second Trinity man I 
finished ninth behind seven Amherst 
""•n and, to make it even more star- 
tling, he was over two minutes behind 
the last Amherst man. Of course, the 
Trinity harriers may do a little better 
their own course, which is quite 
I compared to most courses, but 
>> win have to do more than a little 
nan they did last week in order 
the meet with State.

Williams Wrests Win 
From Varsity Soccer 

The Mass. State College soccer 
squad journeyed to Williamstown 
last Saturday, and returned home de- 
feated by a more persistent Williams 
College team. Despite the 4-2 score, 
the contest was definitely not one- 
sided. As the first half came to a 
close, goals by Carew and Zawicki 
of State had tied the count at 2-2. 
For most of the third period neither 
team could gain any advantage, as 
excellent defensive play by both 
sides earned the limelight. With only 
two minutes remaining to the period, I 
Boyer of Williams broke loose to; 
tally the game-deciding marker. The 
defensive play of Magri at full-back 
met with Coach Briggs' approval; 
while the Donavon-Kakoski pass 
combine was particularly trouble- 
some to the Williamstowners. 

The lineups for the game were as

J-V Soccer team Loses 
To Williston Squad, 2-0 

An inexperienced State junior 
varsity soccer team took on a like- 
wise green J. V. team from Williston 
Academy last Saturday, and lost 2-0. 
The game see-sawed back and forth 
for most of the game with neither 
team scoring goals or threatening 
dangerously. The two Williston tal- 
lies resulted from free kicks given 
to the visitors because of State pen- 
alties. Coach Larry Briggs lauded 
the work of McGrath at goal, and the 
all-around play of Tetrault, Rack- 
leff, and Zucarro. 

This Thursday, the J. V. team 
leaves home to engage a strong 
Hopkins Academy squad. Then on 
Wednesday, October 23, the Staters 
play host to the Mount Hermon team.

Springfield Passes To 
Victory Over JV's, 19-6 

Coach Stan Salwak's State Junior 
varsity footballers dropped a 19-6 
decision to the Springfield College 
Jayvees last Saturday on Alumni Field 
in their first game season. The 
local Jayvees were not in as good 
condition as their opponents, having 
practiced only one week before the 
game, and on top of that were out- 
weighed greatly by Springfield. 

Springfield scored all its touchdowns 
in the first half, while State scored 
its t.d. in the third period, the former 
dominated play in the initial half and 
the latter the situation in the 
second half. 

Mahoney, Springfield halfback, was 
responsible for all three of his team's 
tallies and booted the only point-after 

touchdown. In the first quarter he 

passed to Telft, rigM end, twice for 
scores and in the second period he 
passed to Wals, left end, for a marker. 
The State Jayvees rang up their 
touchdown in the third period on a 
pan from Bon Eddy, quarterback, te 

George Power, left halfback, a play 
which eOTOro d .".n yards. Power and 
Art Jackson both threatened to score 
other six-pointers in that second half, 
but were hauled down from behind 
several times. 

G l a aa o n , left end, Niebola, fullback, 

Janofsky, left guard, and MeGaiT, 
right guard, all looked good on defense 
for State. 

The lineup for State in the game 
was: le, (Meason; It, Houran, Colling* 
wood; Ig, Janofsky; c, Green, Chikla- 
kis; rg, McGarr, Bailey; rt, Sisson, 
Kolman; re, Hall, Mintz; qb, Eddy, 
Gullans, Jackson; Ihb, Power, Pelton; 
rhb, Atlas; fb, Nichols. 

The Jayvees will play hosts to the 
Wesleyan Jayvees tomorrow afternoon 
at 2:00 on Alumni Field. The locals, 
with another week of practice and 
conditioning under their belts, are 
expected to put up a better showing 
than last week and will be out to win 
their first game 

The Mass. State football team com- 
pletely overpowered Worcester Tevh 
last Saturday, 39-0, at Worcester. The 
Statesmen outclassed WPI in every 
respect and grew better as the game 
progressed. Going into the final pe- 
riod, they were leading only 14-0, but 
they ran up four quick touchdo.vns 
in that quarter to completely demor- 
alize the WPI team. 

Fran Keough was the leading man 
on offensive for the Maroon and 
White, scoring the first three touch- 
downs. Other touchdowns were tallied 
by Gilman, Fienman, and Stead. Fien- 
man accounted for three more points 
by booting three points-after-touoh- 

State's offensive power was accentu- 
ated by the fact that they made V.\ 
first downs to Tech's 2. 

The first MSC score came in the 
first canto when Fran Kemigh ran 
back a Tech punt .'{5 yards to sere 

Keough rang up his second touch- 
down in the second stanza when he 
went around end on a reverse fnun the 
Worcester (i yard line. 

Early In the concluding quarter 

Keough hit paydirt for the third time 
when he caught a pass from Hal Plan 
man and ran the distance to the end 
zone on a play covering about 38 yards 
in all 

Fienman took over the spotlight a 
little later when he went off tackle to 
sere from the 1 yard stripe. 

The next t.d. for Coach Mar- 
gesheimer's men came a short time 
later when Bob Ryan heaved a pass to 
Pernio Stead, left end, who was stand 
ing in the end zone. This play covered 
2(» yards. 

State concluded its scoring parade 
near the end of the game with its 
most spectacular touchdown of the 
game. Cilman, backfield sub, was re- 
sponsible for is when he intercepted a 
Worcester pass on his own M and 
zipped MI yards for the climaxing 

The victory marked MSC's second 
of the season against one defeat. 
Worcester has yet to win a game this 
season, having lost to New Britain 
Teachers the Saturday previous to 

R. I. State 

tomorrow afternoon the State grid 
iron eleven will play visitors to the 
Rhode Island State aggregation at 
Kingston, Rhode Island. The Rhode 
Island team was downed by Prown 
last weekend, but that was to be ai 
parted and not much significance can 
he drawn from it. The Rhodies will 
he ex p o rt ed te give the Maroon and 
White a tough time of it tomorrow, 
although the Statesmen are taking 
• very precaution to avoid that. Coach 
Bargeeheirner has worked out tame 

new plays for his charges to use to 
morrow, and is stressing an offense 
by air. Boa Ryan and Mai Fienman 
have both been tossing some 
passes in practice this week with 
Fienman being rated a number one 
threat by the caches and Ryan a very 
capable secondary passer. 

The State gridders have also been 
working out extensively this past 
Week to shape up a good defense 
against Rhode Island plays, with 
average success being had against 

them in the ■crimmagei with the jun 

tor varsity 

Injuries have dogged the State team 
this weak and may heap Dick Jenkins, 
halfback, Evan Johnston, also a half- 

back, Jack LaBarge, and Stan Was 

kiewiez, fullback, on the bench to 

morrow . 

The probable starting lineup for 
State tomorrow will he as follows: 

le, Reed or stead; it, Kenyon; Ig, 

Raymond; ,-, Kstelle; rg, Jakeman; rt, 

Vergeau; re, J Keough; qb, Saatin; 

Ihb, Ryan or Fienman; rhb, Struzziero 

or P. Keough; fb, I

in the short end of a 14-6 count. 

However, the Statesmen did not go

■ spectacular defense on the part of 

Rhode Island Rams, Hargy's 

men would have rolled up their 

itraight victory. While the 

Rams came out on the long end of 

tcore, the statistics on the con- 

gave the visitors from Mass.

ng 329 yards to the Rams 289 

King and passing. The Ray 

also held a 12-8 margin in 


Midway in the first period, the 

Rams rolled 87 yards to their first 

touchdown, which was climaxed by 

I pass from Topazio to Golombiew- 

ski from the 25-yard line. The Rhode 

[slai len then kicked to MSC ami 

later scored their second

On both occasions the Rams 

successfully converted the try for 
extra point; and, as the first quar- 
ter ended the Hay Staters already 
suffered a 14-0 disadvantage. 

As the game progressed, the Ray 
Staters threatened several times, but 
each attack was repelled by the 
stubborn Rhode Island defense. Long 
punts by Roderick continually drove 
the Maroon and White back into 
their own territory. On one occa- 
sion, a State attack was thwarted 
when Rhode Island freshman, Jim 
Marshall, stole the ball on the Ram 
11-yard line. Led by Hal Feinman 
and Rob Ryan, the Maroon and 
White completed 12 passes in 29 
tries, for 199 yards; while fullback 
Dick Lee did the bulk of the ground 

A pass play from Becker to To 
pazio to O'Cara, netting 48 yards 
for the Rams, climaxed a third quar- 
ter drive which brought the pig- 
skin to the Mass. State o-yard line. 
This time the Ray Staters proved 
strong fin the defense and staved 
off the Ram attack.

Choral Group To Give 
'Messiah' Performance 

For the first time in the history of 
Massachusetts State Collage, the 
Christmas program will feature a 
complete performance of "The M- 
siah" by Handel to l>e presented in 

Bowker Auditorium on Friday eve 
ning, December <;. 
A combined choral group of 200 

mixed voices under the direction of 
Doric Alviani will give the perform- 
ance, sponsored by the Hampshire 

County Association for the pre. 

tion of Tuberculosis, Proe Is from 

the concert, will be turned over to 

the association. 

The most. Unique feature of the 
CO ceil will be the admission for the 
first time of professional soloists and 
community residents of Amherst ami 
vicinity. MSC students will still 
comprise the bulk of performers. 
Sixty men and one hundred and 
twenty-five women students are al- 
ready in rehearsal. Mr. Alviani has 
extended an open invitation to fac 
ulty members, faculty wives and 
residents of both Amherst and North- 
ampton to participate. The first re 
hearsal including the non-student 
group will be on Tuesday evening, 
November 6 at 7: MO o'clock in Me- 
morial Hall. 

Featured so'oist in many of the 
difficult and beautiful tenor arias of 
the "Messiah" will be Wesley Cop- 
plestone of Boston. Mr. Copplestone 
was a featured artist with the 
Handel and Haydn Society when 
they last presented the work in Sym- 
phony Hall, Boston in December 
1945. This will mark his first ap- 
pearance on the Massachusetts State 
College campus.

Boston Newsman Speaks 
On The Reporter's Job 

"Everything is grist to the jour- 
nalistic mill," Louis Lyons, outstand- 
ing newspaperman for the Boston 

Globe, told twenty members of the 
newly organized journalism course 
Monday, October 21. 

Knowing a little hit about a lot of 
things is a prime p re r e q uisite for a 

would be reporter, Mr. Lyons pointed 

At the invitation of Professor Ar- 
thur Musgrave, teacher of the Jour- 
nalism course and head of the News 
Service at Mass. State, Mr. Lyons 
consented to deliver a lecture on "The 
Newspaperman's Job." 

"Primarily, a potential reporter 
must know how to read and how to 
write," Mr. Lyons said with a 
twinkle in his eye. He then went on 
to qualify his seemingly evident 
statement with the words— "to read 
intelligently, and to write carefully." 

The primary consideration of the 
newspaper itself, Mr. Lyons assert- 
ed, is that of selection, condensation, 
and sequence. "The absence of style 
is a style in itself," he said bring- 
ing out the fact that the complete 
objectivity of articles in the paper 
in itself is a difficult task to achieve.

Humiliations revived a long- 

Student Government 

The recent meetings for class 
standing problem at MSC: do the independent*, under our present 
system of student government, have fair representation in cam- 
pus politics? 

Bach fraternity and sorority sent one representative for each 
of the three upper classes. The independents sent three delegates 
for each class. On a numerical basis this apportioning ia fairly 
eve... but when the various sororities and fraternities banded to- 
gether, as they so often do, into stubborn blocks, the whole plan 
of a democratic election was completely killed 

A student government should represent all students on campus 
equally and should not favor one group over another. Its nominat- 
ing committees and its officers should be chosen by classes working 
M a whole for the good of the whole group. Judging from the re- 
ports of the recent nominating committees, our student govern- 
ment has a long way to go. 
Students And The Future Of Man 

With the end of hostilities the job of rebuilding the shattered 
universities was begun. It is a colossal task that will require mil 
lions of dollars and years 

needed for the restoration of buildings, libraries and laboratory 
equipment. The need for personal aid to students has been greatly 
increased as they turn again to serious study

students is essential to campus life. 
and should be the aim of every stu-

To those of you who do not kno» 
of this organization, it should be

part in the program of the Indepen 
dents have the right to resign from 
such activities at any time and for 
any reason. This is so stated in the

Mount Hermon's goalie away from 
the eage, and booting the ball int< 
an empty cage. 

The first half saw the Maroon and 
White doing most of the pressin • 
offensive work, but it was not suf 
ficient to stifle the Heniion defense 
and was continually forced back i - 
retreat. In the second half the pro 
cedure was reversed, excluding th" j 
final stab by State, as the Academv 
boys banged away incessantly at th • 
locals' goal but couldn't penetrat 
it. State goalie "Mac" McCrath 
played s superb name at his post 
during these second-half onslaught- 
and time and again got State out 
of jeopardy by getting off some long 
hoots hack to the center of the field. 
Bill Tunis, MSC right fullback, als • 
sparkled on defense and was a main 
factor in turning back the pre]' 
school rushes. 

The aforementioned Winton with 
his stellar passing work and setting- 
up of plays with Zucarro, left In 
side, who did some good pivot work 
in the middle of the field, were th" 
outstanding Staters in fashionimr

Stockbridge Team 
Loses To Nichols 


The Stockbridge football team gua 

tamed its second loss of the year on 

Friday, Oct. 18 at the bands of the 
Nichols Junior College eleven by ■ 
■core of l :>-<). The same was played 
on Alumni Held in a heavy down- 
pour of rain. 

Stockbridge battled on even termi 
all through the first half with neither 
team able to gain consistently. When 
the timekeeper's whistle blew to end 

the first half, the score was tied at 
(I 0. 

Nichols scored early in the second 
half on a sweep around right <'tid. 
The try for the point after was 
blocked so the score stood 8-0 as 
the third period ended. The final 
tally came on a loiitf pass to the 

Nichols left end. The kick was 

missed, so the game ended in a 12-0 
victory for Nichols. 

Adamo and Allen stood out on the 

offensive while Young, Schindler, 
TorCOletti and Pelo&ky were the best 

on the defensive. Torcoletti did i 
good job on the punting. 

The Stockbridge lineup: re Plante;

Deerf ield J. V.'s Win 
Over Stockbridge, 6-0 

In a name played I Alumni Field 
on Tuesday afternoon, Oct. 22, the 
heerfield Acailemy .lunior Varsity 
won a hard-fought contest from the 
Stockbridge Jayvees by a score of 

6-0. The name was featured by 

Deerfleld's pasting attack which 
brought them the winning touch- 
down. Until the last period, when 
Iteerfield scored, there was not much 
choice between the two teams. li- 
the closing minutes, Stockbridge put 
on a drive wbich started from their 
own ten yard line, but the clock rail 
out on them. The officials were stu- 
dents of Mass. state majoring i:~ 
Physical Kducation. 

Statesmen Lose To Kums 
Continued front pa<i< 1 
power running of fullback Dick Lac 
and the passing arm of Hal Feinman 
proved the main c-o^s in the State 
upfield march. The Hams were a! 
most powerless before this onslaught, 

which terminated in a tally for 
MSC on a Feinman to Fran Keough 
aerial play. 

A spectacular catch of a Bob Ryan 
pass on the part of big Bernie Stead 
put the Bay Staters in position to 
score in the last quarter. Once a^ain, 
however, the Rams managed to re- 
sist the attack and held for down-. 

After the first period the Bav 
Staters were constantly on the of- 
fensive, hut the Rhode Islander - 
managed to stave off each Maroon 
and White attack, and then kick out 
of danger. The overall opinion amont;

At University of Connecticut, a 
new proposal has been offered by the 
Revision Committee Chairman on the j 
adoption of a new system for elec- j 
tions. In the plan, a system of vot- 1 
ing providing for proportional repre- j 
sentation is featured. The new plan i 
will be used at Connecticut for the 
election of freshmen and sophomore 
representatives to the Student Gov- 
erning Body. Describing the plan as 
the Hare System of Proportional 
Representation, Milton Sorokin, 
chairman of the Student Revision 
Committee, reported that the sys- 
tem will afford representation to all 
students on campus regardless of 
their affiliations. It will provi le 
greater freedom in voting and nom- 
inating than has previously existed 
as under the amendment as proposed 
any regularly enrolled freshman or 
sophomore whose name is submitted 
In a petition signed by fifty or more 
undergraduate students shall be con- 
sidered a candidate. Only one other 
college uses the cited plan — the Uni- 
versity of Minnesota. The City of 
New York and the City of Cincinnati 
both adopted the system in the 1930's. 

The present system at Mass. State 
is that in which sorority, fraternity 
and independent representatives draw- 
up a nominating list. Actually the 
opinion of the entire student body is 
not exercised in our type of nomina- 
tion as well as in that proposed by 
the students of Connecticut. In our 
recent nominations for class officers 

many students were of the opinion 

that the son.rities and fraternities Wednesday, November 6 


Campus Chest 

After the persistent complaints in years past that there are too 
many conflicting drives, solicitations and worthy causes espoused 
at MSC, students will be glad to know that there will be only one 
drive this year. To you this means one solicitation, one donation. 

Instead of contributing seperately to the World Student Service 
Fund, the Community Chest, tuberculosis, infantile paralysis and 
cancer funds, the American Red Cross, the USO, etc., you are 
being asked to make one donation to cover the needs of all these 
and other charitable organizations. 

In this time of post-war devastation and shortages of food, 
medicine, clothing, and fuel which contribute to starvation, disease liminary roum i w jh be staged by mail 
and the festering of moral pessimism in foreign countries, we can ! am i the two highest teams from each 
hardly rest easy. And closer to home we are faced with the same 
problems of poverty, disease, the disowned and underpriviledeg, 
though less acute. 

Americans are forever patting themselves on the back saying 
that ours is a great and democratic, a free country. Whether this 
is the attitude of the smug and unseeing, or lip service to ideals 
that have become trite through wordy manipulation is for you to 

Why not testify that this is not the case by freeing others less 
fortunate than you from the oppression of poverty, hardship and 
disease. Do this by giving to the Campus Chest. 

When a Campus Chest solicitor approaches you remember that 
with the $3.00 donation asked, you are contributing at once to all 
of the charitable organizations that would regularly campaign on 
the campus. Remember how far your donation goes, remember 
that it comes only once, and dig down deep. 

Give to the Campus Chest!

The year 1 * » 1 T will see the first In- 
tercollegiate Bridge Tournament to 
be held on a nation-wide scale. 
Invitations have been sent to more 
than 800 institutions accredited by 
the Association of American Uni- 
versities. Kach invited university-

tion — is asked to select its own var- 
sity by any method it chooses. A pre- 

of the eight zones into which the 
U. S. has been divided will be in- 
vited to Chicago for face-to-face 
finals in April. 

The Intercollege Bridge Tourna- 
ment Committee made up of inter- 
ested Alumni, bears the cost of bring- 
ing the finalists to Chicago. The win- 
ning pair at Chicago will be known 
as the 1947 National Intercollege

Things have settled down enough 
now for the returned vet of the early 
forties era on campus to take stock 
of the changes that have come abr.ut 
as the aftermath of war. 

Probably one of the best hues noted 
in the academic aurora borealis 
which has suddenly broken through 
the campus clouds is the appearance 
of a number of new instructors. 
These learned men have brought with 
them a fresh sheaf of lecture notes 
sprinkled with humorous sidelights 
scintillating because of their very 

The students who are feeling for 
the first time their newly acquired 
manhood (mental as well as chrono- 
logical), have exhaled that long-held 
breath which confined within physio- 
logical bounds doubts a prospect- 
ed return to academic sanctuary- 
aroused. It would be hard, they 
warned themselves, to return to the 
cloistered expression of the theories 
of life which ap p eare d to the discern* 
ing to he the sum and lubstance ol 

pre-war teaching. 

Having travelled and seen th" 
world at its inherent worst, these 
citizens-by-right-of-sacrifice could not 
be expected to absorb the story-book 

version of the nftir-lifc .... after 

graduation, of course. 

Rut they were pleasantly surprised

In order to answer some of the 
questions asked about the Veterans 
Association, some of the most common 
queries have been assembled. Further 
inquiries regarding veterans' affait, 
are solicited. 

What are the political affiliation > 
of the Associations? 

This organization is composed of 
individuals of different political loyal- 
ties. No one party dominates the 
affairs of the association. 

Is this organization affiliated with 
any veterans' group such as the Le- 
gion, VFW or AVC ? 

No. This is an independent local 

What are the yearly dues ? 
Fifty cents a year. 
Who is eligible to join? 
Any person who has served in any 
branch of the service and is attending 
Mass. State or Stockbridge is eligible. 
Does the Association work only on 
veterans' problems? 

No. The efforts of the Association 
are directed toward benefiting the 
entire college. What helps the veteran- 
student helps the college. 

The following item appeared in the 
October 20 issue of the New York 

My name is John Crown. I am a 
paraplegia at Halloran General Hos- 
pital. My physical wounds are very 
small in comparison with my spiritual 
wounds. I have come back from death 
to a world that I no longer care for. 
I, who have been engaged in the 
great struggle to save the world from 
tyranny and having seen my comrades 
die for this cause, can now find no 
peace in the world or in my country. 
Having lived close to death for two 
years, the reasons why there is no 
peace seem infinitesimally flimsy. 
Russia wants the Dardanelles, Yugo- 
slavia wants Trieste, the Moslt 
want India, labor wants more wa: 
capital wants more profit, Smith 
wants to pass the car in front of him, 
Junior wants more spending money 
To these, I say, is it necessary to kill 
and cripple human beings for thes.- 
petty gains? 

Anyone who thinks a human body is 
so cheap that it can be traded for a 
tract of land, a piece of silver, or a 
few minutes of time should be forced 
to listen to the moans of the dying 
night and day for the rest of his life. 
All the troubles of the world origi- 
nate in the common man. The selfish 
and greedy ways of nations are just 
the ways of each individual man mul- 
tiplied a hundred fold. When the 
morals of the common man drop, so 
do the morals of the nation and of 
the world. 

As long as our individual morals 
remain at a low ebb, so will be the 
world. Until each of us stops "hogging 
the road" with his car, stops fighting 
over the seat on the bus, stops argu- 
ing over who is going to cut the 
grass, there will be no peace in the 
world. If man wishes peace 
again, he must return to the great 
Commandment, "Love thy neighbor 
as thyself for the love of God."

Problems Vary as Students Flock to School 

In every college across the nation, the story is the same . . . record enrollments, 
inadequate housing, shortages of food, book famines, classes crowded to over- 
capacity, campuses groaning with the greatest influx of eager young education 
seekers in the history of the country. By far the most baffling problems are 
those involving the returned G.I., who is quite logically taking advantage of 
government sponsored education programs. With him, he often brings a wife, 
occasionally children. As a result the color of college life this record-breaking 
fall is splashier, flashier, more dramatic in its contrasts than ever before. 

For the first time, colleges must cope with such unocademic problems as high- 
chair shortages. California Polytechnic college in San Luis Obispo is busy 
rounding up more of the scarce articles while the only high-choir in their 
cafeteria is used now on a "first come, first served" basis by the families 
of married vets. Winner at the moment is 1 5-month-old Barry, shown here 
with his mother. Carry, and his father, Horry Wineroth, at the end of a 
successful chow race.

For Beauty-Brain Bonors 

Broadway producers and college newspapermen have long been 
challenging one another as to the beauty of college girls compared 
with that of show girls. Now a new angle comes to light as four 
secretaries from the University of Minnesota seek a corner on the 
beauty market with the help of a publicity agent in Silver Springs, 
Fla., where they spent their vacation. 

Rosemary Dowdle, Betty Kasparek and Frances and Eleanor Arn- 
berg, all of Minneapolis, Minn., ore shown in a series of pictures 
on this page as they toured Indian villages, visited reptile gardens 
and lived by the side of the silvery sea. 

One of their biggest thrills came when they slipped into bathing 
suits and entered the photo-sub boats to take pictures of models 
performing under water. Then, not to be out-done, the girls joined 
the models for an afternoon swim. 

Now, complete with a Florida tan, they have returned to the uni- 
versity to help school officials handle on all-time high enrollment 
of more than 25,000.

Since the only way to see the underwater beauty of Silver 
Springs is aboard a glass-bottomed boat, Betty, Rosemary, 
Fran and Eleanor made this No. 1 on- their program and arc 
shown here as they give their tickets to the skipper. 

It didn't take Frtin and the girls long to find out that you can put on 
alligator to sleep by gently stroking his stomach, after, of course, you 
had him on his bock. 

In the Seminole Indian village, the girls found it easy to moke friends with some of the natives

Here Fran 

Caricaturist Scotty Westerfield provided the girls with a fitting

picture as the girls model on the diving board.

Duty Of Electorate 
To Know And Vote 

In any dscaosrstlc system of go\ 
eminent, it is axiomatic that th* 
people (or, at any rate, those Dei 
sons who are eligible to rot*)) get tin- 
kind of government they deserve. 

Pressors applied by individuals or 

minority groups notwithstanding, 
the fact remains that the ultiniat • 
sovereign power in u democracy nst 
with the people. 

This Sovereignty resides with the 
people permanently; but here in the 
United States, we have traditionally 
exercised our sovereign powers only 
at specified times: at those times 
when government administrators 
I must be chosen. Whether it !>.• right 
or wrong that this display of sover- 
eignty occurs only spasmodically is of 
no particular consequence here. What 
is of vital significance is that once 
again (on November . r .) we will be m 
a position to pass fomal judgment 
upon ourselves. During the past few 
years, we have been governe I either 
as we chose to be governed or els ■ as 
the men whom we elected chos ■ to 
govern us. On Nov. 5, we shall have 
the opportunity to decide again how 
we want to be governed, and to whom 
we want to trust our government. 

We must cast our ballots on Nov. 
5, fully aware of the ballot's signifi- 
cance. We must remember that the 
ballot is the most effective token of 
our sovereignty; that to abuse it 
would be a corruption of democracy. 

The editors of the Collegian feel 
that the mere casting of the ballot is 
not enough. The voter must hold him- 
self responsible for the intelligent 
use of the ballot. 

Recognizing the importance of the 
current elections, the editors of the 
Cttllti/ian have undertaken in this 
page to aid the voter in his attempts 
to rediscover the fundamental issues 
involved, and how these issues are 
represented by candidates for office. 

We are printing in this issue the 

ve records of those men now 

holding office. Great care has been 

! exercised to assure the accurat • pie- 

sentation of these records. The re-

"Since wars begin in the ralndi of

tin- defenses of peace must he con-

stitution of the UNESCO.) In this 
spirit, World Student Service Fun I 
announces plans for the tenth year of 
its operation in hehalf of American 
students in their activities for relief 
and reconstruction among students in 
war devastated countries. 

The following report of student 
conditions in Europe an 1 Asia was 
sent to the Campus Chest Commit- 
tee: Remarkably rapid recovery is re- 
ported from Holland, Denmark, Bel-

Charles G. Holte, Chairman, Ameri- 
can Veterans' Committee says this 
about the WSSF: 

"The American Veterans' Commit- 
tee is making every effort to cooperate 
with the World Student Service Fund, 
and heartily endorses its program. 

It is the hope of the Committee that 

its members will give their enthusias- 
tic support to the financial drive of 
the Fund in their colleges. Certainly 
the immediate and long-range objec- 
tives of WSSF ate congenial to our 
own great, constructive purposes at 
home and abroad. 
A group of recent college graduates 

in China say: 

"Without your aid, we could not 

speak today. This letter is not a 
letter of thanks. Our letter of thanks 
will be written on the first page of

The following editorial appeared in the Collegian of Nov. 1, 1945, 
upon the conclusion of the lasl Campus Chesl Drive. 


President's Message: 

To the Students and Faculty of 

Massachusetts State College: 

As all of you know, there is hunger of the mind as well as the 
body in Europe and Asia today. The Community Chest, with its 
aid to the world students service fund, is an opportunity for every 
student and faculty member to help meet both needs of our fellow 

It is a great opportunity, not only because the needs are great, 
but because the Campus Chest Drive will be the only opportunity 
for the college as a whole to give aid. It is a collective opportunity 
to answer the what-can-I-do question that any person of good 
will asks himself or herself when confronted with the problems 
of a war-shattered and hungry world, in the re-building of which 
students of all lands will have a key role. 

On behalf of the college I wish to endorse this drive. And may 
our goal of $3,500 be quickly reached and exceeded. 

Hugh P. Baker 

Dean's Message: 

To M.S.C. Students: 

It is expected that the members of any community will support 
worthy social, educational and charitable projects. A college is a 
community of citizens. Since the students are among those who 
must be considered as fortunate we ran take it for granted that 
they are sensitive to real needs and eager to contribute to their 

The campus chest drive aims to raise a substantial sum this 
year. Every dollar thai is raised will help support such projects 
as The World Studenl Service Fun. I. the U.S.O., The March of 
Dimes, and the Red Cross. 

The goal set is definitely within reach. Those in charge of the 
drive are certain that it can be oversubscribed. Do not pass over 
lightly this appeal. It will be the only demand that will be mad. 
this year. Let us do our part individually in the spirit of the Good 
Samaritan who said to the one in need — "What is mine is yours, 
we'll share it."

Migrating * Maeae students watting

In China the second great migra- 
tion of students is still in progress. 

Ninety thousand student! are moving 
back from the war-time centers of 
rtudy In the i iterior to the university 
campuses on the coast which had to 
be abandoned with the invasion. The 
hardships of travel are immense and 
the task of rebuilding shattered cam- 
puses is enormous. WSSF offers help 
and encouragement through relief 

operations at rail and road center- 
where supplemental food, lodging, 

medical aid and oth St necessities are 
supplied. Ten new relief Centers are 
being established in the cities where 

the aggregation of students is great- 


The actual need for the prosecution 

.if this wok in Europe and Asia is 

estimated at $5,000,000. A realistic 
appraisal of possibilities for the in- 
come points to a minimum world 
budget of, half of which 
will come from American Students. 

MSC has been asked to contribute 
a minute fraction of that sum, hut 
with the aid of all of the students an 1

do its part.

cies in the fight against this disease. 
Those who die of it are victims of 
neglect neglect bj the community 
which fails to provide effective means 

to prevent the spread of the disease. 
TB breaks up homes, separates hus 
bands and wives, parents and chil 
dren. Wage earners are taken from 
their jobs, families are thrown on 
public support, orphans must DC 
brought up. 

One of the ways in which the pub- 
lic can help prevent and combat tu- 
berculosis is by donation. Donations 
will be used to care for the stricken 
person in the home or at a sanitorium 
or TH hospital. They will be used to 
provide more beds, further research, 
and advance scientific treatment. 
Some of the money you give makes 
possible the program of local TH as- 
sociations; some goes to the State 
TH association for state-wide work; 
five per cent goes to the National 
Tuberculosis Association for nation- 
wide work. Your donation will help 
people who need it, so give freely.

Blocked Kick 

Beats Jay vees 

A blocked kick spelled diiuter 

last Saturday at Alumni Field as the ; 

BJSC Junior Varsity football team 
lost to a strong Williams College 
freshman eleven, 12-7. The Purple 
and [{lack of Williams ouweighed the 
Hay Staters in every department; in 
fact, this same freshman team has 
actually swamped the varsity in 
■erimmage. Despite apparent disad- 
vantages, coach Salwack's gridsters 
would have emerged victorious except 
for the blocked kick which came late 
in the final period. 

Guardsman Tom McGarr once 
a^ain earned the moniker of "Krem- 
lin" as he botched up the enemy of- 
fense, play after play. Dave Jackson 
who sparkled as leading ground- 
gainer against the Wesleyan Jayvees 
the previous week, was the victim of j 
a sprained ankle early in the contest, | 
sidelining him for the remainder of 
the afternoon. Halfback George 
Bower stepped in and became the of- 
fensive star of the game. 

The first score of the game was

Today at 1:1.". the MSC Harriers 
will jog it out with the Lord Jeff 
cross-country boys from the center 
of town over the Amherst course in 
what lhou!d prove to be a hard- 
fought tussle all the way. The States- 
men will be out to win this meet 
above all others, first of all to retain 
the supremacy which State athletic 
teams have held over the Jeffs dur- 
ing the past year and secondly to 
topple Amherst from the undefeated 
class. State has a record of three 
wins and one loss this fa'l while the 
Jeffs have gone through three meet 
without defeat However, th- latter 
have not met the competition which 
the locals have this year. Middle- 
bury, Trinity, and last week Wes- 
leyan have been the Amherst Oppo- 
nents, and none of them is particu- 
larly strong. State, on the other 
hand, defeaed a st ionic Northeastern 
t'-am and lost by a fairly narrow 
margin to a mighty MIT aggrega- 
tion besides beating Trinity and 

A good turnout of MSC students 
at this meet to support the localities 
would help the team along. The stu- 
dents who do attend will be able to 
witness the start and finish of the 
grind at the Amherst gym and will 
also be able to view the runners at 
times during the middle of the race 
from the same vantage point.

The Mass. State hooters played 
their first home game Saturday, 
chalking up their first win in four 
starts by shutting out a highly-rated 
Cniversity of Connecticut team by 
two big points. 

On a field still wet and slippery 
from a late morning downpour, the 
Urigg-adiers played a brand of ball 
that has not been equaled by any- 
State team this season. A losing 
streak which was due primarily to 
lack of experience was broken in this 
tilt by our boys wno showed the 
home folks that they had what it 

Wih the game only six minutes 
old, Kokoeki, dribbling adroitly, 
passed from the inside to Johnny 
Donovan who booted the ball into the 
tag-- for the first score. A minute 
later a pass from Hank Zawicki to 
Bill Carew resulted In the second 

('apt. John Giannoti guarded the 
State goal exceedingly well and 
helped prevent the enemy from tally 
ing. Kokoeki performed magnificently 
end coach Larry Brigga said of him, 
just after the game, "Kokoski was 
about the best there was on the line.' -

play. Lee powered his way through 
then cut sharply and sped the rest of 
the way to pay-dirt. Bob Ryan was 
brought in to kick the extra point and 
Mass. State lead 7-0. On the first play 
of tne second period, Charley L'Esper- 
ance, subbing for, intercepted a 
Vermont pass on the State 85, sped 
all the way to the Vermont 3 yard 
line, where he lateralled to quarter- 
back Stan Waskiewicz, who produced 
the score. Bob Ryan passed to end 
Bernia Stead for the extra point. 
State kicked off to Vermont and one 
play later refrained possession when 
tackle Bob Raymond recovered a Ver- 
■oat fumble on the latter's 3"> yard 
line. Ed Struzziero plunged to the 27, 
whence fullback Dick Lee took over, 
finally scoring on a spinner play 
through center. Bob Ryan again p'ace- 
kicked the extra point. Late in the 
naif, State was deep in Vermont ter- 
ritory only to have the time run out. 

With the score 21-0 in favor of 
Mass. State, an angry Vermont team 

took the field for the second half. The 
Green and Yellow of Vermont kicked 
off to State, but soon took over on 
downs on the Bay Staters' 1(1 yard 

line. Combining an aerial attack with 

tricky lateral plays, the visitor! from 
Vermont drove to the state n> yard 
line, whence halfback Al Baker tal 
lied on an end run. Stan I'rsprung 

kicked the extra point, and state' 
lead was now reduced to 21-7. Ver- 
mont was not yet finished. A few 
minutes later a State fumble was re- 
covered by an alert Vermont lines- 
man on the State 11 yard line. After 
earning a first down on a lateral 
play to the State 81, St. Celais, a 

substitute hack, carried on a revert 

to pay-dirt. Again the extra point was 
earned on an Ursprung boot; and 
State's lead was cut to 21-14. Early 
i.i the final period, a State drive wa: 
halted when a Jenkins' pass was in- 
tercepted on the Vermont Hi yard 
line. The Maroon and White pass de 
fense proved weak as the visitor 
drove up to the State 4 yard line. The 
State line was too great an obstacle 
and finally Vermont sent fullback 
Bob Hunziker around right end for 
the score. With only the extra poin 
needed to tie up the ball game, Stan 
Ursprung was again dropped had 
from his end position to attempt th' 
conversion. The entire State line con

Briggsmen Lose To 
Trinity, Amherst 

Just as the Mass. State hooters bs 
lieved that they were on the road to 
recovery after defeating the I', of 
Conn., they suffered a relups • at the 
hands of Trinity College by a seme of 

Kelson and Brainsrd of Trinity 
scored eurly in th.' first period to] 
give the enemy a lead which they 
maintained throughout the game. 

State was not outplayed in the 
least. Donovan and Zawicki kept 
bringing the ball down to Trinity's 
goal and Stebbins set up many shots; 
but what Larry BriggS 1 boys lacked 
was a "climax man". We needed a 
man who could sink a goal. The Ma- 
roon and White had plenty of oppor- 
tunities but just couldn't click 

There were two main changes in the 
lineup; McCrath replaced Cian olt 
at the goal and did a good job. Ger- 
ardo at center forward also made a 
favorable imp less ion. 

The lineup was as follows:

The Stockbridge Varsity football 

team lost a dose, well-played name to 
Vermont Academy, 14-6, last Satur- 
day, Nov. 2. 

The teams battled on even terms 

: of the way with Vermont taking 

advantage of a blocked kick to score 

its first touchdown. The place-kick 

was good, making the score 7-0. 

Stockbridge recovered a fumble in 
the first period to pave the way for 
its first score of the year. On the first 
play after the fumble, Allen carried 
the ball from the thirty-five to the 
one yard line. On the next play he 
went over for the score. The try for 
the point after was blocked. 

The final score came in the third 
quarter when Vermont took advanta-e 
of a BtOCkbridgfl fumble. Coach Ball's 
team put on a drive in the final pe- 
riod, but finally lost the ball on a fum- 
ble deep in Vermont territory 
Tocoletti, Schindler, R i 1 o s k i , 
Howies and Young stood out in the

vided the best offense.

Tufts Traditional Rival 

Massachusetts State's high flying 
Statesmen invade Tufts Oval at Med- 
ford this Saturday in the wake of a 
".*»() victory over a demoralized 
CCNY squad. It is to be expected 
nevertheless, that Fred K 1 lis* Jum- 
bos will provide much keener opposi- 
tion despite their poor record to date 
than any preceding opponent State 
has thus far encountered. Tufts came 
up strong to defeat a formidable 
Coast Guard eleven last Saturday 
sinking the sailors 18-12 in a well 
fought battle all the way. 

Here's how State stacks up against 
Tufts this Saturday. The forward 
wall is practically two deep in ver- 
satility all along the line and possess- 
es such stalwarts as Izzy Yergeau, 
Red Sullivan, Russ Kenyon, Downey, 
and McDonough. The biggest asset 
to State's defensive ability this season 
was the ableness of Bud Estelle to 
step into Joe Masi's shoes at center 
when a head injury forced the latte> 
out of the game early in the season. 
Fstelle's hacking up of the line has 
been nothing short of spectacular all 
season long.

of the EJniveraitj of Chicago, depart 

in. nt of Agricultural Economics, dm 
ing the first meeting of the Bowditch 
Agricultural Forum held in Bowker 
auditorium on Wednesday. 
"Prices have reached a stage where 

the effect of the war upon them is at 
an end. Farm goods will drop 'lu-'.WV ', 
during the next three years, relative 
to the prices of other commodities," 

he told a gathering <>f over 500 Ex-

and students. 

Advocating s substitution of capi- 
tal for labor in agriculture, as well 

as in other industries. Dr. SchultZ 
stood with the other Forum speakers, 
Noble Clark, of the l'. of Wisconsin. 
and Harold 15. Rowe, of Mrookings 
Institute, on the question of estab- 
lishing greater efficiency in the pro- 
duction of primary goods, 

Sidelighting the original speeches, 
Mr. Clark observed it would be well 
for the United States to Stop feeding 
Europe, and instead provide the farm 
machinery and raw material for them 
to grow their own food. 

"It is time," he said, "to stop mak 
ing tin

agree with this attitude. He felt, how 
ever, that it would be cheaper to adopt 
Clark's proposal.

Once again the thermometer in front of South College has been 
set up to indicate the progress of the annual Campus Chest Drive 

From tho very bottom of the scale the marker is expected to rise 
to the |3500 goal and, it is hoped, beyond it. 
Where is the mercury now in the Campus Chest Thermometer? 

Stop and look at it. The drive is two-thirds over but as yet little 
definite progress has been recorded. 

This is the one charity drive that will he conducted on campus 
this year. It helps the World Student Service Fund aid needy stu- 
dents tho world over. In contributing to the "March of Dimes" 
the money raised at MSC will help combat infantile paralysis. The 
donation to the Tuhereulosis Assoeiation will aid in the light 
against tuberculosis. This money is urgently needed. 


"When our government grants groups of people the privilege 
of collective action in a corporation, in a labor union, or in a farm- 
ers' cooperative, there is the implicit understanding that they 
will use these collective agencies in such a manner as to promote 
the public welfare. To permit the beneficiaries of this privilege of 
group action to use their collective power to advance their selfish 
interest at the expense of the most of the population, is to invite 
the gradual hut certain impairment of our entire economic order. 
I know of few needs in our nation today that are so urgent as the 
acceptance by leaders of labor, of agriculture, and of industry that 
they are accountable not just to their own group, but to all the

Solitude P, Serenity and Casanova 
B. Gregarious were horn and raised 
next door to each other. Their child- 
hood was a happy one; they played 
together and became the best of 
friends. Then, as if overnight, came 
maturity, and with it a marked 
change in the two boys. 

Solitude became a quiet, studious 
young man. He went to college and 
day and night he did nothing but 
study. Chemistry, English, math, he 
knew them all backwards and for- 
wards, and K"t high marks in every- 
thing. Girls meant nothing to him. 
Of course, he went now and then just 
to make his roommate feel safer, but 
he was no big man with the ladies. 
When marks came out, Serenity's) 
name headed the list. Thing! went on 
M they were for his four years of 
college, and he graduated with hon- 
ors, set up his own business, and 
married. Solitude and his wife led a 
quiet life raising three children. 
Every morning he would stroll mer- 
rily to work, and every evening he 
would come home to while away the 
night playing bridge. This went on 
year after year. 

Casanova, on the other hand, was a 

wild cuss. He drank moderately, 
smoked to some extent, and pursued 
the girls to excess. He, too, went to 

college, where he studied fairly liar I, 

not too much. Women wen his chief 
trouble; in fact, he was thrice threat" 
eiied with expulsion hccailse of his 
affairs with the feminine part of the 
human \:ict\ He graduated finally, 
opened his own business, and married 

■ very well-to-do woman. Every night 

he and his wife WOUld "do the town" 
. . . there wasn't a night club or hot 
spot that they didn't hit; the Stork 
Club, Copa Cabana, Latin Quarter, 
White Eagle, they visited them all. 
Often they wouldn't arrive home un- 
til tin- wee hours -if the morning. (In 
spite of this they managed to raise 
four children). All in all, they led 
a merry life. 

It was when they arrived home 

one morning that they received a tele- 
gram Stating that their dear friend 
Serenity had gone beserk one evening 
and had strangled his wife and chil- 
dren, then poisoned himself to end 
his life at the ag« Of thirty-four. 

Ah, it was a sad day when the 
Gregarious family attended their late 
friend's funeral, and many tears wen 
shed. And after this Casanova re- 
turned home to danee and drink away 
the years, until at last he passed 
away at tho ripe old age of 10.">.

Something new has been added to 
OUr campus: the married vet and his 

Maternity Row is divided into dis- 
tricts housing the /((lets and hiiri- 
HOt$ . . . off-sprinp, of course. The 
clothesline is the best indication of 
who has what, although, it is some- 
times confusing. American tfals guard 
that waistline like the Jerries pa- 
trolled the Siegfried! 

Anyway, once your reconnaissance 
has determined what to expect, you 
can discover what the day has to of- 
fer the average citizen of Federal 

Sliding down the social strata to 
the basic two-room apartment, we 
find Jim and Jane colliding on the 
road to the bath room. This niche is 
probably the most popular spot in the 
house, and only a dividing lane keeps 
the traffic under control. 

Rut getting back to the bath room 
. . . even the intimacy of married life 
becomes strained when our hero, try- 
ing his best to scrub the cob-webs 
from his teeth, finds himself swallow- 
ing hairs Jane has shed during the 
traditionally vigorous 100 brush 
st rokes. 

In answer to the cussin' this 
arouses, there usually is a loud 
"Shaddap!" from the other side Ol 
the thin partition separating the 

Joneses from the Smiths during their 

"Whatcliailoin'," comes the query. 

••N'uthin'." .. . whatchudoin".'" 


And so to bed. 

When the alarm rings in the morn- 
i 1 1 j_r » Jim jumps to answer the call . . . 
and discovers it came from the Smith 
Chateau. But, since he is already up, 
Jim Jones decides that Sweetie Pie 
has worked too hard lately being the 
Big Wheel of the Vet's Wives Club. 
So, he lets her sleep while he lands 
to the fire and breakfast. 

Building the fire presents a prob- 
lem. The only draft in the place is 
that flying through the cracks in the 
walls. Trying to tf«'t the fire started 
without a draft is as bad as cooking 
a pot mast with a lighted match. 

The fire problem is solved, however, 
as the chapel chimes warn the Iuk- 
gard that U mpus is figitw*. 

"Honey'.' I won't have time to get 
this tiling tfoinp. You'll take care of 
it, wontcha?" 

Reassured by the feeble "yes" from 
the heap of blankets on the tpaeU me 
double bed, Jim gallops off to his 
eight o'clock. 

The day moves apace. While the 
mainstay of the family is off learn- 
ing to make the daily bread, the 
■lumbering Village conceals the bee- 
hive of activity that is the G. I. bride. 
I'll pet one of them to jrive you lonely- 
hearts the low-down one of these days.

Jim returns to his colorful two rooms,

After this interlude, the happy 
couple separate. I must explain here 
that a minimum of conversation is 
necessary due to the crowded condi- 
tion of the units. The fewer words 
exchanged, the less likelihood of dis- 
sension. Trying to live in the same

The hardest part of the wl,

exercise their right to ballot. S 
apathy on the part of the studenl 
body is very unbecoming. There are 
many on the campus who, when some- 
thing is voted on, are quick to 
"Railroad!", or complain bitterly | 
it was too bad it didn't pass who an 
too lazy to take five minutes out t 
go to the polls and vote. Roth Sri

places on campus with ballots sol

community the necessity for such ac

certainly shows a lack of a senst

the student body.

other charity drive in 1945-47. 

As the CampttS Chest is organized, 
funds will be collected for all the 
charity needs during the year. A 
large proportion will be given to the 
World Student Service Fund, an or- 
ganization established for providing 
aid from students to students the 
world over. The American Red Cross, 
the "March of Dimes", and the 
"Christmas Seals" will also be in-

State Harriers Top 
Previous Showing 

Putting up the best showing any 
MSC cross-country team ever lias in! 
the New England Intercollegiate!, the 

State barrier! finished sixth iii the 

mei't at Boston last Saturday, state 

had a score of 185, the lowest it has 

compiled in the New England* al 

though it has finished sixth twice 
before. Rhode Island successfully 
defended its championship hy winning 
the meet with a score of 7.". Spring- 
field was second with K2 and MIT 
third with 85. 

Bob Black of Rhode Island won the 
race, defeating favorite Ted Vogal of 
Tufts by 2D0 yards. Louie Clough, 

State*! main hopeful, finished tenth. 
He was hampered somewhat by a cold 
and probably could have finished 
among the first six or seven were it 
not for that hindrance. Alec Camp- 
hell, who has been finishing immedi- 
ately in hack of Clough all season in 
dual meets, ended up 21st, after 
holding the lead for the first half- 
mile. The other Statesmen finished as 

follows: Ed Pierce, 82; Whitey Cos 
tar, 41; and Hill Howes, 44. 

Hlack ran the I'j mile course in 
2() minutes, 55 seconds, 16 l-fi sec- 
onds short of the record. Vogel was 
timed in 21 minutes, S3 seconds, and 
O'l.eary of Holy Cross in 22 minutes, 
'! seconds. 

Vogel jumped into the lead after 
the first half-mile, closely followed 
hy Hlack, O'l.eary, Ed I.emieux of 
Trinity, and Lloyd Hlethen of Maine. 
Vogel and Hlack had gained a 200- 
yard lead on the rest of the pack at 

the two-mile mark and were running 
pretty much together. Hlack took the 

lead shortly after and at the three- 
mile post had opened up a 150-yard 

advantage over Vofiel, who was still 

secure in Second place. At ■'!'- miles 
Blethen of Maine had stolen third 
position from O'l.eary, who was fol- 
lowed hy Silas Dunklee of New 
Hampshire, I.emieux, and Bobby 

Knowles and Tom Crane of Spring- 
field. O'l.eary sprinted hack into third 
place near the finish line. He was 
followed hy I.emieux. Hlethen, 
Knowles, and Crane. Dunklee and 
Henry Heme, MIT runner, were the 

other two runners who finished he- 
fore Clough. Clonal) hail previously 
defeated Henze and Ed I.emieux this 
season which would seem to prove that 
the cold he had Saturday must have 
had some effect on him.

members are necessarily chosen on 

a year-to-year hasis, most of the Sen- 
ate members are relatively unknown 

to the greater pari of the student 
body. A possible remedy might lie a 
weekly column in the Collegian which 
would include (1) pictures anil brief 

biographies of perhaps two senators 
a week, and (2) a brief resume of the 
week's activities (minutes of meet 
ings, etc.) and a brief announcement 
of policies for the future." 

Richard Laeey '48: "1 think that 
there should be some members of the 

Senate elected from the Sophomore 
Class so that the representation 
would cover more members of the 
student body." 
Fredriek /•'. Chtyott, J,. '18: "I 

think that the Senate should have 
more publicity as to their activities. 
They should let the student hody know 
what they are doing." 

Irr Rabbins '47: "Unified student 
government is hadly needed here at 
M.s.c. The Senate and W.s.C.A. 
have made a great step forward by 
holding joint meetings on various

presenting all the students, should

guaranted a fair proportion of the 
membership and would handle all 
women's problems. In this way one 
democratic representative hody could 
speak for all tin- students. 

"I further advocate nomination by 
petition, and Senate representation 
based on equality." 

Claire FogHa '48: "I suggest that 
the Senators publish a monthly or 
bi-monthly report of their accom- 
plishments in order to keep the stu 
lent hody informed. Their jackets are 
very impressive, hut as far as their 
efforts are concerned, I know little or 
nothing. One problem that I suggest 
that they consider is the improvement 
of the floor in the Drill Hall for 
college dances." 

Edwin E. Drewniak '48: "The rep- 
resentation on the Senate is undem- 
ocratic. It should he composed of an 
equal number of members from each 
of the three upper classes, and should 
allow more freshman on committees. 
In addition, the minutes of all meet- 
ings should he published in the issue 
of the Collegia* which follows the 

Sherwood Davidson '48: "I think 
that the average student knows very 
little about the Senate, its activities, 
its powers, and most of all, the 
Senate Constitution. The student body 
should be informed of every move 
the Senate makes." 

linh Church '4!» and Diek Montagu* 
'48: "Although we have been at Mass.

say that the Senate has in any no- 
ticeable way made its influence felt as 
' a governing body. It hasn't affected 
us one way or another."

Inter-Fraternity Sports I 
Return To Mass. State 

For the first time since 1942, inter 
fraternity competition has been 
brought hack to the Mass. State cam- 
pus. The athletic competition among 
the fraternities is being sponsored hy 
the Inter-Fraternity Council with the 
assistance of Fran Kiel of the ath- 
letic department. 

Six-man football teams have al- 
ready been organized by the f'rater 
nitiei and are now competing in an 
extensive schedule drawn up by Coach 
Biel. The schedule calls for two weeks 
of competition among all fraternities 
and a third week for the playoffs of 
the highest scoring teams. 

Upon the completion of the foot- 
hall season, further plans call for 
fraternity competition in basketball, 
volleyball, and Softball.

Letter To The Student Hody 

Following a four year lapse, MSC 
and Tufts College are now ready to 
continue their .""><; year old rivalry 
which began in the year 18811. In one 
of the oldest rivalries of New Eng- 
land, MSC has won 11, lost 24, and 
tied .",. Our last victory was in 1935 
when we topped the Jumbos by the 
score of 19-13, However the last time 
the Statesmen won at Boston was in 
1921, 2-"> years ago. Competition be- 
tween elevens such as these two are 
long and far between. Twenty-five 
years is a long time to wait for our 
team to be victorious at Medford. 
Perhaps, now is the time for Mass. 
State to even the score. 

The Jumbos have always been a 
favorite in the eyes of Hoston and 
state-wide rooters. Supporting the 
Statesmen is more important now 
than ever before. Sports fans have 
been keeping one eye open on State's 
"fast-rolling team", and a strong 
showing of supporters, regardless of 
the conclusion, would clinch the fight- 
ing spirit of MSC in the minds of 
Hoston fandom. Now is the time for 
us to show Tufts and State that we 
are in hack of the fighting Maroon 
and White. 

Comparing the two teams is a dif- 
ficult thing to do. The won and lost 
column shows the Jumbos losing ."> 
and winning 1 ; State losing 2 and 
winning 5. However, statistics should 
go by the board in a contest such as 
this one. The rivalry will be keen; the 
victory a hard fought one. 

Whatever the outcome be, let us 

all show Tufts that we are in back 

i of Coach Hargesheimer's men and 

that not only have we a good team, 

but a well supported team.

in the game. Several times the line

New England Poet 
Will Entertain 
At Social Union 

Robert Frost , outstanding New 
England poet, will give readings of 
his own poetry tonight at Social 
Union at 8 p.m. 

Mr. Frost has come to be one of 
our favorite poets because of his 
many poems about New England, 

The poet declares that there is no 

need to worry about trying to read 

meaning into any and every poem. In 
fact, he has warned against this. Me 
Claims easy does as his formula, "It 
is far better to under interpret than 
to over interpret." 

Mr. Frost says he has used his 
poetry as a safety valve for matters 
troubling him. He just rid.; himself 
of his annoyances by writing it into 
a few lines. For this reason he calls 
poetry the form of forgiveness.

Smith Student Tells 
Of Prague Conference 

Mass. State College will ha allowed 

to send two delegates to the first Na- 
tional Students' Union Conference at 
the University of Chicago December 

27-2!», it was revealed yesterday by 
Miss Miriam Haskell. 

Having attended the second World 
Students* Conference in Prague, 
Czechoslovakia this summer, Miss 
Haskell, a student at Smith, spoke 
at convocation of her experiences 
there, and of the pro posed national 
students' union. 

Delegates from thirty-six nations, 
representing %% million students, at- 
tended the Prague Conference, she 

"To secure for all young people the 
right and possibility of primary, sec* 
tmdary, and higher education . . . To 
promote friendship between the stu- 
dents of all the world," declared Miss 
Haskell, are two important aims of 
the world union. 

Explaining the initiation of the 
world organization, she told how on 
November 15, 1939, a large demon- 
stration took place in one of the great 
squares in Prague against the N'azis 
who had just occupied the city. 

The first person to fall from the 
bullets of the German police was 
Jane Oppctala, a student at Charles 
University. Two days later, on No- 
vember 17th, the students of the uni- 
versity hfdd a funeral procession for 
their hero. 

That night the Nazis acted; stu- 
dent hostels Were raided, 157 stu- 
dents were executed, and many were 
deported to concentration camps and 
forced labor. The Czech universities

Campus 'Varieties' 
Boasts Top MSC Talent 

//< oill h< ll,,i,. for that matter, 
so will everyone else. Where? At 
Bowker Auditorium on January 10, 
1947, the day of this year's presenta- 
tion of the long-awaited Campus Va- 
rieties. The written ami produced 
comedy show promises to he one of 
the most hilarious ever to appear on 
the Mass. State stage. 

The dual purpose of the forthcom- 
ing production, sponsored by Adelphia 
with the assistance of Isogoti, is fast- 
moving entertainment, and raising 
money for the War Memorial Lund. 

The performance will he a musical 
comedy in three arts, which will re- 
vive many student traditions. Act 
1 will depict the happy life of the 
male animal on the campus in pre-wai 
days; Ac* 2 will show our hero in 
action on the battlefronts of the 

world; Act 9 will bttriesquc post-war 

life at State. The entire performance 
will be gene ously sprinkled with 
songs and extraneous characters. 

The gentlemen responsible for the 
latest version of the daffiest show 
on the campus are Milton Bass and 
Gordie Smith, both of the Class of 
'47, co-authors and producers. Just 
to make sure that no holds are banc I, 
John VV (call me Mister) Hicks

Students and Faculty of MSC: You can be proud of yourself 
when boasting of the wonderful average of .000 in connection with 
the past two charity drives conducted on campus. The .000 average 
represents your success in putting two charity drives over the top, 
it points to the glaring truth that you have failed when asked to 
give a few dollars to aid students the world over who are sorely in 
need of that contribution to obtain an education, to maintain life 

Last year, your WSSF Drive fell short of its $3000 goal by $750; 
today, your Campus Chest Drive faces failure as the latest reports 
fix the sum collected at $644. Think for a minute, $644 is exactly 
$2856 short of the goal for the 1946 Campaign. Have you done your 
best toward this drive? 

Consider for a minute the part that you played in the "success" 
of this drive. Did you, when approached by a collector, give the 
excuse that you are short of cash, or that you do not believe in 
drives of this sort? Or that your GI check does not cover an ex- 
pense like this donation ? And did you later go out on a weekend 
spree and spend three times the amount that you were asked to

This office has been deluged with gripes about the interminable 
delays in holding class elections, and has been asked to furnish the 
answer for the apparent sloppy organization on someone's part. 

If any darts are to be hurled, the members of the various classes 
should be the first recipients. After failing to show up for several 
scheduled class meetings, making it impossible to ballot the slate 
and schedule election dates, the students gripe asking, "What's 
going on? Why aren't elections being held?" etc. The answer 
is self evident. 

Due for a barb is the Senate, which is supposedly directing and 
supervising meetings and elections. It seems apparent that the 
lethargic interest in the elections stems from the inadequate pub- 
licity program, which is their direct responsibility. 

On Oct. 25 the COLLEGIAN carried the class slates. Four weeks 
have now elapsed and still no elections What to do about it? To the 
Senate: Inaugurate a widespread publicity program; put some life 
into the elections; let students know far enough in advance of the 
meetings. To the students: Attend and Vote!

At ease ( please) ! 

It is common knowle Ige hereabouts 

that once again MSC has a i active, 
energetic R. O. T. C. unit in opera- 
ion. In sending S fe*Jr stray shots 
your way, old Kick hopes to acquaint 
you-all with the personnel and divers 
activities of "the military" on cam- 
pus. Perhaps I'll land a few in th •

gie's drawers will fly occasionally. 

I'll call my shots, but I can't be re- 
sponsible for those which ricochet.

duce officers and Kasy Mikes of the 
department, as well as veterans

who are enrolled in the It. (). T. C. 
courses. These vets once professed to 
be nervous in the service, but you 
should see 'em now — madly pulling 
their overseas stripes and hash marks 
on the frosh and sophs of the feather- 
merchant variety. After all, fellas, it 
ain't their fault if they still think a 
Mickey Mouse movie is a Walt I>is- 
ney cartoon ! 

It just so happens that the subject 
of our first sketch is the V. M. S. & 
T., Col. R. B. Evans. (It's my nose 
isn't it?) Col. Evans, a graduate of 
West Point in the class of 1923, had 
a long and varied Army career. After 
serving 14 years in the Cavalry, he 
was detailed to the Armored Force in 
1937, where he did extensive work in 
planning and organization of armored 
tactics and equipment at Fort Knox. 
Kentucky. He later joined the staff 
of the Command and General Staff 
School, Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas, as 
an instructor and head of the de- 
partment of Armored Tactics. During 
the war, Col. Evans served in both the 
European and Pacific theatres. He 
was commander of the 7th Armored 
Division Trains, and later chief liai- 
son officer of the 12th Army Group. 
After V-E Day, Col. Evans went to 
the Pacific, where he was chief of 
the training division of the G-3 sec- 
tion of Headquarters AFWESPAC.

These 20-day wonders — Alan War- 
den, Maurice Blaurer, John Lambert, 
and George Rosenfield, are alreadv 
polishing up those triple silver difes 
in anticipation of the Military Ball 
on Dec. 13. But all kidding aside, 
these cadet officers are doing a sw'l 
job at Saturday formations, manipu- 
lating their platoons and companies 
in some very classy drill. It is repor L - 
ed that Capt. Blaurer drops all sug- 
gestions of authority after these 
drills, when he double-times home to

Brother, is he outranked! 

Seveal interesting sub-courses make 
up the curriculum of the R O. T. C. 
elementary course for the Fall Period. 
The most intriguing, and certainly 
one of the most valuable courses is 
tbat entitled The World Military Sit- 
uation. Intelligent news analysis is 
stressed to enable the cadet to inter- 
pret world events in proper perspec- 
tive, to provoke thought and discus- 
sion, and to bring about the realiza- 
tion that every citizen is an integral 
part of both national and internation- 
al structures. Bringing a fascinating 
eye-witness account of the Bikini atom

This drive, if you remember, is a 
combination of the Community Chest 
plus the World Student Service Fund 
plus the tuberculosis, infantile paral- 
ysis and cancer funds plus the Amer- 
ican Red Cross plus the USO, and so 
on into the night. Naturally, to cover 
the combined drive, students were 
asked to give a bit more; and frater- 
nities, sororities and other campus 
organizations were asked to give

The Difficulties 

One difficulty arose when the ques- 
tion of store personnel was aired. The 
reasoning employed was that the in- 
vestors could run the store, if they 
would sacrifice their spare time for it.

PrtnWd by Hamilton I. N«w«il, 



Time: December 2, U)42; Place: the squash court, underneath 
the weal stands at the University of Chicago's Stagg Field. 

A monster was about to be conceived: 

Two men stood at the top of the gigantic apparatus holding 
buckets of cadmium solution in case the reaction should get out 

of control, slowly, the cadmium and boron controlling bars were 
drawn from the "pile". The electronic counters began clicking 
faster. 1200, 1400, 1500 . . . Would it reach the critical figure 
1600? The last control bar was drawn out. The indicator swung 
slowly to 1601, hesitated, stopped. The men at the instruments 
wiped the perspiration from their brows, smiled weakly. Dr. Comp- 
ton rushed from the room and 'phoned President James Bryant 
Conanl at Harvard. 

"The Italian navigator has arrived in New York and found it 
much smaller than he thought it was", said Dr. Compton. 

"I hope the natives received him kindly", replied Dr. Conant. 

Thus the monster, Atomic Fission, with the Italian professor 
Enrico Fermi attending as chief obstetrician, was born. The event 
marked Man's first success in controlling and sustaining thechain 
reaction of splitting the atom. 

Fast Monday, the monster was four years old. His growth 
through Manhattan Project and his controlled destruction at Naga- 
saki and Hiroshima are known to the whole world. The most im- 
portant question before the world today is: Will Man be able to 
control this monster, or will it, like the imaginary monster of 
Frankenstein, turn on his creator and destroy him? 

Volumes have already been written on this subject, perhaps 
adding to the confusion already existing in the minds of most 
people. The problems we face, however, are clear — terrifyingly 
clear. Tin- facts are these: 

(1 ) The Atom Bomb exists, it is an actuality. It won't go away 
if we simply ignore it. 

(2) It is 20 million times more powerful than a corresponding 
mass of TNT Official estimate that 40 million Americans could 
be killed in one day by Atomic bombing. 

(3) There is no defense against the Bomb — except not being 
I here w hen it goes off. 

The answer to this problem lies in knowledge, in an alert, in- 
terested, and well informed public. And this public must be all in- 
clusive — not just a few scientists and intellectuals. Hitler could 
not have succeeded if the German people had not allowed him to 
succeed. Therefore, it is vitally important that each individual 
know the issues involved. Every American should read and under- 
stand the Lilienthal and Baruch Reports. An understanding must 
be readied with Russia. Apparently, F. S. statesmen are now 
making some progress toward this understanding in spite of hectic 
innings. But public opinion is a powerful factor in shaping 
foreign policy, so again, the issues rest squarely on the people. 
Political considerations aside, the Russians area practical people. 
Surely they must see that a future war would gain nothing for 
either side, and that an understanding must be reached. 

We are faced with two possibilities. Either we can find a solu- 
tion to the control of atomic weapons or we can fail. If we fail, 
mankind will destroy itself in a future war.

Going home! There'i magie in those 
wo ids! 

There is no other incident in our 
hurried lives these days which brings 
home more effectively the fact that 
the years ure slipping past with in- 
creasing momentum, and the days of 
OUr youth cling precariously to the 
quicksand of memory. 

Going home for Thanksgiving! 
There is excitement in the mere 
sound ! 

Leaving campus, cloistered by the 
surrounding Holyoke range, a new- 
spirit of adventure into the past as- 
sails the mind. The closer to home we 
get, the more solidified becomes this 
communion with the past. A pano- 
rama of childhood experiences flashes 
before the eye, and quick emotion 
wells within us, to think that never 
again can those careless days be re- 
captured. We have been damned to 

"See that beach on the river bank? 
I used to swim there with the gang, 
years ago. Look at that field . . . the 
kids and I played Robin Hood in it 
many a day. We roasted spuds in a 
stinkin* old fire there, too." 

But home is where nostalgia really 
cements its hold on the imagination. 
The familiar smells of Mom's mtprr 
cooking. . . all the things you loved to 
eat. The old chair where she scolded 
you for letting the dog sleep on it. 
The bookcases you were forbidden to 
explore, until advancing senility 
brought with it the privilege of use, 
iidi/ possession. 

The minute you Stepped past the 
• loor all your cares seemed to lie 
plucked from your shoulders by a 
youth, strong in its dying spasm. You 
no longer were a quarter of a cen- 
tury old, nor were you an independent 
pater familtOM. Mom had taken over 
as idol and ideal of a youngster, an! 
with a welcoming caress she hail 
brushed away all the years and their 
petty cares. Vmi were young again, 
very young, and there remained for 
you hut to eat, sleep and have fun 
among the cherished possessions of 
another day.

Veil, men. this is it! One week from 
today the ROTC will start the winter 
social season with what promises to 
lie the best military hall in a long, 
long time (and that's no joke, ton). 
Here's a tip. If you're planning on 
going to this gala soiree, don't, I say 
don't procrastinate any longer. Maul 
your carcass over to the l>ril] Hall 
and buy your invitation toute de suite. 
(Don't blame me if they're al! gone; 
the Collegian carried info on ticket 
sales two weeks ago.) 

If any of you jokers don't know 
what I'm talking about, kindly get 
zeroed in by turning to the front page 
of this paper and reading the article 

on the Military Hall. 

* * * 

I guess we all reniemher how mil 
Uncle Sam flunked out in Military 
Preparedness I*. P. (previous to 
Pearl). I guess we know why, too. We. 
as a nation, were generally indiffer- 
ent to and unaware of forces at work 
across those great big, beautiful, 
oceans. Must of us realize today that 
those beautiful oceans are not big. 
and to help insure that we don't get 

caught again with you-know-what- 

where, the new post-war ROTC pro- 
gram aims to give more intensive and 
comprehensive training to more and 
better men. Indicative of the on-the- 
beara policies of our new Army, as 
DCted mi our own campus, is the 
ROTC course in The World Military 
Situat ion. 

At this crucial time, when many of 
us are tempted to sink hack into that 
convenient opium-dream of isolation- 
ism, ROTC cadets are being emphat- 
ically reminded of foreign and nation- 
al military developments, with their 
inevitable social, political, and ecu 
nomic implications. ( All cadets sched- 
uled to turn in papers 760 words or

Hear Kditor: 

In adjusting the Military Ball back 
to the status of pre-war days, M.S.C. 
women seem to have been neglected. 
During the war, it was we gals in the 
main, who financed and supported 
"Mil Ball"; it was we who kept up 
the tradition; now even the right to 
so much as purchase a ticket has been 
denied us. 

It is true that a great many fellows 
will be taking campus girls, however, 
many more will be importing their 
women. What about those girls who 
have fellows off campus that they 
would like to invite to "the high-spot 
of M.S.C.'s pre-Christmas social sea- 
son"? What about those girls who 
have already made arrangements for 
the big formal unaware of the new 
rules which would be set forth? Must 
they suffer the embarassment of hav- 
ing to revoke those invitations due to 
the fact that the committee has 
granted the privelege of purchasing 
the invitations to male students only? 

We like to see the men return to the 
campus and we like to see them take 
an active part in the campus activ- 
ities, but we feel that we should not 
be pushed back into oblivion. 

In reverting to pre-war days, let us 
not revert to pre-suffrage days!

The Trash Barrel 

By Arthur Burtman 

Fraternity! The very word sug- 
gests a close bond of comradeship; a 
unity which is indivisible. "A frater- 
nity man should be willing and ready 
to help his brother at all times." You 
may not think that this is true, but 
today we shall attempt to prove the 
veracity of that statement by showing 
an event in the life of a fraternity 

The scene the t'psilon Omega 

Chi Lambda Tau Zeta Alpha Mu 

fraternity house. Three couples are 
seated iii the library, looking very 
glum. A brother who owns a car en- 
ters the room, and a light of inspira- 
tion appears in the eyes of one of the 
girls, whom we shall for convenience 
call Joyce. Joyce slithers up to the 
new arrival and says in a deep, ap- 
pealing voice, "Darling honey lamb 
chicken pie, can Bob and I borrow 
your car for tonight?" After this she 
plants a juicy kiss on his sweating 

"No!" he sa\s. 

"Oh, but dearest beautiful big hunk 
of man, we just want to go for a 
little ride." 

"No!" he says. 

At this point the above-mentioned 
Bob sidles up to our hero and says 
inspiringly. "Remember, we are broth- 
ers. It isn't as if we were complete 
strangers we must try to help 
each other. We won't be going alone - 
there will he three brothers, and we 
will even take you along and pay for 
your evening. Just think, four t'psi- 
lon Omega Chi Lambda Tau Zeta Al- 
pha Mu men together, and three 
tempting maidens. An unbeatable 
combination. Now, what do you say?" 

"Xo!" he replii 

Ten minutes later we find the 
three couples and our dejected ' ■■ ■" 
driving towards the Hadley Sports- 
man's Club. They arrive, are seated, 
and place their orders. The three 
COUples, who all drink, order their 
respective liquors, while our odd sho, 
who by now feels completely out of 
place, is forced to content Hmself 
with a meal of corn pones and cig- 
arette butts. At one time he is about 
to leave, but he is held hack by the 
phrase Fraternity Men Together, 
ringing dramatically in his ears, foi 
he realises that tiny are still to- 

Finally the evening is ended and 
th<> group climbs into the car to start 
their journey home. The three couples 
settle down to a session of smooching, 
and our hero begins to feel frustra- 
tion creeping over him. He is about

The stories of "Out of 0.1. Clothe

but everyone who has been in service 
feels that one's own conversion de

not an exception. 

As soon as the G.I. Bill of Bights 
was passed by Congress there was no 
doubt as to what I would do as soon 
as I was discharged. From Lady 
Leatherneck and Cherry Point to

Student under the G.I. Bill was my 

Now I stroll about a campus proud 
ly wearing a little "Ruptured Duck" 
pin which designates that I am a 
member of a great group. Advantages 
of various sorts are given. Most 
concern is centered around my pri 
mary task, the acquiring of knowl 
edge. This knowledge is not for myself 
alone, it is also for everyone who 
served his country in war and who 
will be asked to serve it as completely 
in peace. 

For these advantages are not mere- 
ly for my benefit — but with an eye 
for the future, Congress sees that 
national needs and improvements will 
be derived from its educated men and 
women. Shortly we will find change^ 
in every position of life, farmers 
using labor-saving improvements in 
their work, factories and industries 
gradually perfecting production meth- 
ods colleges and schools becoming 
more efficient. 

Men and women at work and st 
home will be urging our nation ahead 
to success and freedom through the 
benefits of an education donated by 
the government. However, all our ef- 
forts will be in vain if peace is not 
secured and made permanent. 

In all states, men are seeking I 
new approach to the settlement of tin- 
war and the keeping of the peace. 
They are aware, that somehow, sunn 
where, the government has lost the 
way it promised and intended to take, 
and has become entangled in a snai 
of vicious contentions. It lost its way 
when it undertook to begin the settle- 
ment of the World War by dealing 
first, not with the central issues, but 
with the peripheral and secondan 
issues. This has resulted inevitabl 

Jan endless series of insoluble ml 

I crises. 

Only through education can knowl- 
edge be acquired in order to and* 

stand and strive to construct a plsti 
for correction of these minor is- 
which obstruct our desired way of 
life. People who have a well develop) 
background, can assist in this prob- 
lem. College and post graduate work 
in Government, Economics, Science, 
Literature, and all constructive .-• 
ies that make for a more smou* 
running, a more secure, educated na- 
tion, should be our goal, — Our g 
of freedom. 

Freedom is not a brave, flag wax- 
ing thing. We think it is: the v. 
makes us feel so. But that is longil f. 
not the thing itself. Most gallant | 
sions cover slavery. To fight for f 
dom — there is a noble sound in 
Crusade, the ideals, the victory. B it 
nobody is free who goes to war. W 
there is war some part of us is si.

New Rules For Dances 

New rules for college dance are 
now in force, according to an an-

On Student Life. 

The most important changes in the 
old rales are that ordinary dances 

must be authorized by Dr. Helming 

at hast ten days in advance, and ma 
jor formal dances at hast thirty days 
in advance. 

Two couples of faculty standing 

must act as ehaperones. 
Copies of the rules are available in

Letter To The Editor 
The eurtain has rung down on 

Mass. State's 1946 football season and 
the victory over Tufts at Medford 
has been almost forgotten hy the aver- 
age student. The 1946 eleven, how- 
ever, rates a few words in retrospect. 
It has compile! the beat State record 
since 1932 and might easily have 
romped through the schedule unde- 
feated had Lady Luck been willing. 

There is little doubt that 1947 
should be a bam er year for the 
team. Three men will drop from the 
Varsity via graduation but Coach 
Walt Hargesheimer has capable men 
ready to fill these positions. 

While the graduation loss to the 
team is comparatively light, however, 
academic work itself is beginning to 
exact its toll. Two players have al- 
ready dropped by the wayside because 
of inability to maintain satisfactory 
grades. As Dean's Saturday ap- 
proaches several others are allegedly 
tottering on the brink of disaster. 
Efforts have been made, mainly by 
the students themselves to assist some 
players this semester. This effort has 
been sincere, and has been greatly 
appreciated by the recipients. 

A resulting stir was created among 
the faculty and a few members have 
promised to be patient and under- 
standing until time is made up. 

Good teams take time to mould and 
time spent on the gridiron detracts 
from studies. 

Let's give some of these boys a 
chance to catch up. Perhaps that 
small stir may become a rising tide. 
It is a case of Mass. State sinking 
back into sports oblivion after a bril- 
liant start, or rising to one of the top 
small college teams in New England. 
Which shall it be?

Field Event Men 
Lacking In Track 

Coach Derby Looking For 

Jumpers, Hurdlers, 

And Weightmen 

Coach Derby called out candidates 

r Indoor track this week and got a 
fairly good response, save for field 
events and high hurdles. Just as was 
the case last year, there has bee, a 
sufficiency of candidates for tin; run- 
ning events but a dearth of aspirants 
for the field events. Last year th" 
State tracksters lost several meets 
because of the lack of capable field 
event men, and unless more of such 
men report this year, the situatioi 
may repeat. 

The sole field event candidates are 
Dick Frost, senior, who was a high- 
and broad-jumper in 11)42 and 1943; 
.John McDonough, a shotputter in '43, 
now a senior; Warren Bodendorf, a 
senior, who hurled the discus and 
shot last year and is throwing the 
35-pound weight this winter; and 
Walt Koenig, discus and javelin man 
last season, who is also engaged with 
the :i.">-pound weight. 

Coach Derby's immediate concern, 
besides that of acquiring more field 
event men, is to make up a one-mile 
relay team to participate in the 
Knights of Columbus and H. A. A. 
meets in Boston Garden, January 25 

and February 8 respectively. The 

main candidates for this quartet are 
Charlie Warner, senior, leadoff man 
on the '12 and '43 relay teams; Alec 
Campbell, junior, number three man 

on the 'A'i team and a star on the 
cross-country team this fall; Marshall 
Gilman, sophomore, former eastern 
Massachusetts star with Maiden 
High; Louie Clough, the key man of 
last year's track teams and this fall's 
harriers; George Bower, leadoff man 
on last season's quartet; Lew Wills 
and Whitey Cossar, cross-country 
men this fall; and Ralph Osgood, 
former runner for Greenfield High.

and continued for more than half H 

century as s college of Agriculture

Natural Sciences and Liberal Arts 
were developed at first as supporting

Somehow or other the testimony of Mr. Clarence Roberts, repre- 
sentative of the Boston Real Estate Board at the hearing on the 
university of Massachusetts problem, has served to give new em- 
phasis in our minds to the need for education. 

Mr. Roberts announced that he was opposed to a state university, 
and we thought the high point in his speech was his estimate that 
it would cost "$9,000,000 a year just for maintenance of a univer- 
sity". Staggering. 

Mr. Roberts explained that he had gotten this $9,000,000 figure 
by looking up data on the universities of California and Wisconsin. 
He gave no analysis of any particular figures, so we are not in any 
position to judge what he looked up or what he found. 

Anyway, we looked up some figures. Take a New England uni- 
versity, such as the University of Vermont. Established in 1791, 
this university must be the oldest state university in the nation. 
According to the U. S. Office of Education the state grant in 1937- 
38 for this university was §185,000. Massachusetts State College 
received $1,200,000 that year. (Incidentally, the college con- 
tributed its entire income to the state.) 

In fact, we're prepared to show that there are dozens of univer- 
sities which operate on a smaller budget than does the Massa- 
chusetts State College. Several are quite close to home. The Uni- 
versity of New Hampshire, for example, became a university in 
1923. $9,000,000 budgets? Fact is. this university's budget is 
smaller than that of Massachusetts' State College. 

It seems to us a fair statement to say that Mr. Roberts jumped 
to a conclusion without any evidence. By so doing he managed to 
create a straw man — really a $9,000,000 bogey man. He then pro- 
ceeded vehemently to express opposition. 

We're also prepared to show that dozens of universities are far 
teas universities than the state college in Massachusetts. At 
present, we have five schools, and three divisions, a two year school 
of vocational agriculture, and a graduate school. All of which adds 

up to saying that a university would be a better name than college, | lege for "inefficiency", and added that 
because of the general meanings these terms have as far as the 
public is concerned. 

Regardless of the name, the state college must expand if it is to 
meet the needs of Massachusetts veterans and high school students. 
What tlie University of Massachusetts program means — and the 
Collegian has had it as the first point on its platform for several 
years— is a reasonable expansion of the school, and a name ap- 
priate to it.

obtaining a higher education that

Mr. Cashman estimated that 60 per

He favored the proposed state uni-

dent of LaSalle Junior College and 
Alexander Brin, editor of the Jewish 

"Crying Need" Cited 

A state university was also en- 
dorsed by Augustin Whelan, principal 
of Revere High School, who declared 
there was a "crying need" for ex- 
pansion of the state college if "pupils 
in my school are to have higher edu- 
cational opportunities." 

Lyman D. Owen, Haverhill school 
superintendent, then told the Recess 
Commission that private colleges and 
universities are interested in the geo- 
graphical distribution of their stu- 
dents and in taking care of the chil- 
dren of alumni rather than educat- 
ing the youth of Massachusetts. 

The next advocate of a state uni- 
versity in Massachusetts was Andrew 
Kerr of Barnstable, a past command- 
er of the United Spanish War Veter- 
ans, and an '()(! graduate of M.I.T. 
In a lengthy brief, Mr. Kerr empha- 
sised that lather than expand the

state should build a university at

Mis. Flora A. Lane of Worcester, a 

member of the state Board of Colle- 
giate Authority, then testified that al- 
though she considered Fmmingham 
an excellent site, she felt the location 
was unimportant so long as young 
men and women desiring higher edu- 
cation can obtain it. She cited various 
examples to show that Massachusetts 
youths can no longer go ou t f the 

state, and that the state itself pro- 
vides inadequate facilities. 
Dr. Edward Hodnett, vice president 

of Massachusetts State College at 
Fort I >evens then testified. Emphasiz- 
ing that he spoke both as a veteran 
and as the head of the veteran's col- 
lego, Dr. Hodnett said that Ma 
chusetts must plan now because vet- 
erans and other students at colleges 
will, in a few years, want the special- 
ized training given at universities. 

Criticising the advocate's of a state 
university in Hoston or Framingham, 
Dr. Hodnett declared that it was his 
opinion and the conclusion of Fort 
Devens faculty members that a uni- 
versity could not be started from 
scratch now and still be able to take 
care of the veterans who are fresh- 
men at Fort Devens. 

"Great problems will face us in the 
future," said Dr. Hodnett, "and we 
will need men with advanced training 
to cope with them. Increased attend- 
ance at colleges indicate the univer- 
sities will be taxed to capacity in the 
future. We have admirable univer- 
sities in Massachusetts but they are 
national and not state. The day of 
great endowments is over and there- 
fore there is need for a full and com- 
plete state university to serve our 
citizens and our country." 

Concentration Of Faculty 
"One thing our experience at Fort 
Devens can prove," he said, "is that 
to have a university in time, it is nec- 
essary to have a concentration of fa- 
cilities and faculty". 

Dr. Hodnett continued by saying it 
would be "logical and economical" to 
locate the proposed state university 
at Amherst where existing facilities 
of the state college could be "quickly- 
expanded to university size." 

Lester A. Giles, president of the 
state college student government, then 
spoke briefly to urge expansion of the 
Amherst college and change of name 
to a university. He declared that the 
more than 2(100 students at Amherst 
favored a University of Massachu- 

More Expensive 

Rep. Daniel Rudsten of Dorchester 
then spoke in favor of a university, 
but urged it be in Boston so as to 
take the pressure off private univer- 
sities that can not accommodate Bos- 
ton students. He expressed the opinion 
that Boston students would prefer to 
go to school in Boston, rather than 
go away from home to college. 

Aldea Carroll of Bridgewater then 
addressed the Recess Commission 
members to say that she was a state 
college student and that although she 
did not represent any group she 
wished to comment on the idea of a 
university in Boston. 

Less Expensive 

"I live in Bridgewater and am fi- 
nancing my own college education." 
she declared; "and it has been less 
expensive for me to attend the state 
college at Amherst than going to col- 
lege in Boston." 

Clarence A. Roberts of the Boston 
Real Estate Board then spoke in op- 
position, saying that a university of

MSC To Send Delegates 
To Student Conference 

The American delegation to the 
World Student Congress at Prague 
has called for the establishment of a 
non-partisan, national student organi- 
zation in the United States. As ■ re- 
sult, a conference id' American college 
students has been planned for Decem- 
ber 28, 20, and .'{0 to discuss the need 
for such an organization, and to es- 
tablish a national preparatory com- 
mittee to make specific plans for such 
an organization. 

MSC delegates to the conference 
are Lea Giles and Peg Parsons, presi- 
dents of our student government as- 
sociations. Some of the projects which 
they may discuss as a program for an 
American student congress are: the 
elimination of racial discrimination 
on campuses, the extension of educa- 
tional opportunities to all, the advo- 
cation of lower tuition fees and the 
increase of scholarships and govern- 
ment aid to qualified students, and the 
facilitation of student travel and ex- 

Both delegates have announced that 
they will be glad to receive sugges- 
tions from any students as to prob- 
lems which they should bring up at 
the Conference.

Roberts was critical of proponents

Expansion Of MSC 

Continued from page 2

high costs of city reft] estate. 

Amherst is a college town, largely 
■elf-contained, end removed from the 

noise, distractions and temptations of 
a city. Three other colleges are lo- 
cated nearby. 
1 have been speaking largely from 

the standpoint of Agriculture, Horti- 
culture, and the Sciences, which now 

ha\c University status, and which 

an deeply aware of a need for a com- 
parative development in other tit-Ids 
if they an' to maintain the standards 
they have achieved. 

The needs of the State for develop- 
ment ill these other fields will he

are on our overflow campus at Fori 

Deveni right now five hundred and 
forty-nine men who desire training 
in Engineering. M.I.T. and Worcester 

Tech are filled to capacity. In Feb- 
ruary 1948 as many of these Fort

others will presumably he out of luck. 
These are the kind of hoys from 
our so-called lower and middle classes 
who have been Koinu' to the Univer- 
sities of Maine ami New Hampshire 

because hitherto we have given no 
degrees In professional Engineering 
and the number of such applicants for 
training will doubtlessly increase. 

Or consider the Kids- There are 
two hundred ami fifty-nine high 
schools in Massachusetts and one hun- 
dred and twenty-nine parochial 
schools. In contrast to our prac- 
tice in Agriculture and Horticulture, 
for several years we have had to turn 
away some tfirls who were thorough- 
ly qualified for admission to the 
Schools of Home Economies and Lib- 
eral Arts. The largest number of 
ftjirlfl that we have SVST l>een ahle to 
admit to MSC this was during the 
war was two hundred and sixty-six, 
which would indicate an average of 
one girl from less than two-thirds of 
our secondary schools. This year, un- 
der the pressure of (1. I.'s we could 
admit exactly one hundred — -one girl 
apiece from one hundred schools ami 
none from the two hundred and 
eighty-eight others. 

Consider the case of one of the 
Boston hitfh schools with four hun- 
dred ami eighty-three in the graduat- 
ing class. We received this year from 
the Upper fifth of this class thirteen 
formal applications for admission to 

MSC, including the girls who stood 

first, second, eleventh, thirteenth, 
fourteenth ami sixteenth in a class of 
four hundred and eighty-three. We 
could admit only one the valedicto- 
rian. Even the salutatorian had to he 
turned down. I can imagine what her 

tsxpaying father gaid shout the edu- 
cational Opportunities of the Common- 
wealth of Massachusetts. And re- 
member we can admit only one hoy 
from each of these three hundred and 
eighty-eight schools as well. 

This is an indication of the tre- 
mendous pressure for higher educa- 
at the Massachusetts State Col- 

Tin- faculty whom I represent be- 
lieve that the plant at Amherst should

the probable enrollment of students j I'ease of Amherst College tried to or 

gani/.e a four-college cooperative 

library saying that such a joint enter- 
prise would make the Connecticut 
Valley a veritable Mecca for scholars 
from all over the country. 

A university of 15,000 students 

in higher education seem to justify 
two institutions. Kven among the 
large Western states where conditions 
make the two school arrangement 
practical, it would seem that those 
which concentrated their institutions 

in one place Minnesota, for example, | imaginatively developed on our eight

headaches and also seem to have ' intellect, and a nohle monument to the 

achieved rathei greater prestige in the 
educational world. 

Certainly there are the "makings" 
of a very creditable university in Am- 
herst. Kven twenty-three years ago 
the Zook Commission In a three hun- 
dred and fifty-three page report on 
educational opportunities in Massa- 
chusetts said: 

"The development of a state univer- 
sity at Amherst would concentrate at 
one place practically all of the state 
university's activities, a situation 
which has many advantages in ad- 
ministration and might eventually 
avoid costly duplication. As a pro- 
gram for procedure the establishment 
of a state university at Amherst has 
further advantages in the fact that 
parts of the proposed university may 

he developed Immediately by utiliz- 
ing the faculty, buildings and equip- 
ment already available." 

Today, twenty-three years later, 
not only are the "faculty, buildings 
and equipment" much more exten- 
sive hut the institution has been re- 
organized on a university basis with 
separate schools of Agriculture, Hor- 
ticulture, Science, Home Economics 
and Liberal Arts, with potential ones

Engineering School 
Bill Filed In House 

A bill to create an engineering 

School to meet the needs of veteran: 
at Massachusetts State College has 
been introduced this past week by 

Colonel II. T. Aplington, represents 
tive from this district. 

Calling for the investment of 
$1,600,000, the bill is designed to 
provide uppeirlass training for en- 
gineering majors now at Fort I >ev 
ens anil iti Amherst, as well as to 
take care of Massachusetts high 
school graduates. 

The I (evens administ rat ion has 

reported that there arc 549 engineer- 
ing majors in the freshman class 
that entered this fall, and it is 
planned to transfer these men to 
Amherst in February next year. 

Colonel Aplington told the Colltg- 
ian that he regards expansion of 
engineering facilities as "the glpal 
est single need of the state college." 

"The need of the veterans was 
mentioned by the governor in his in- 
augural address in connection with 

the enlargement of the State Col- 
lege," he added. 

Late Flash 

As the COLLBGIAN ams to 

press, it was learned that two other 

bills calling for a University of 

Mass. have been introduced.

Neither hill specified any location

in Massachusetts that in no way ap

breadth "f curriculum that is now 
offered at state College." 

Asked if he expected any ODpoal 
tion to the hill, Senator Mahar said 
that "then- may pos.;ihly be some op 
position from persons who think the 
name 'university' would necessarily 
mean an unjustified expansion of 
tin- institution. 

"This, of course, is a misconcop

U. Of Mass. Committee 
Holds First Meeting 

After getting off to a flying start 
by dropping leaflets from an air 
plane, the student committee for the 
I'm versify of* Massachusetts nettled 
down to trench warfare with the 
first fully attended meeting of the 
Committee lust Monday night. 

Chief business of the committer,

vest i rate the possibility of re-acti- 
vating the Mass. State radio station 
in South College. 

Paced with a crowded campus SO 
cial schedule, deriving mainly from 
the War Memorial drive, the com- 
mitter, chairman Michael Donahue 
presiding, voted to seek financial 
backing exclusively through student 
and other donations, in lieu of spOfl- 
Mred dances and athletic events. 

It was also voted to issue a month- 
ly financial statement through the 
columns of the C»ll< t/inn. 

The committee will meet again 
Monday night, Jan. IS, at 8:80, also

(The following highlights of the inaugural address by Coventor Robert P. 
Bradford, fan. 2, 1947, are herein reprinted by the Collegian, uho considers 
these remarks entirely in line tilth its editorial policy.) 

At the last session of the General Court, recognizing the vet- 
erans' need for additional educational facilities at the college level, 
you authorized the establishment of an extension of the Massa- 
chusetts State College at Fort Devens. This was admittedly a tem- 
porary expedient and has left to entering classes of veterans an 
undetermined future for the final two years of residence at the 
Massachusetts State College at Amherst required for the under- 
graduate degree. It is evident that some provision should be made 
immediately for the accommodation of these veterans at the State 
College without denying the same opportunities to Massachusetts 
high school graduates who will in increasing numbers be seeking 

1 recommend for your consideration the studies of your Recess 
Commission on Education and. in particular, those sections dealing 
with the suggested enlargement of our State College. 

Soil conservation practices, precision pest control methods and 
long-range planning for dairy herds and poultry flocks all need to 
be improved and extended. The State Department, the Extension 
Service and the Experimental Station of the State College must 
be equipped and staffed to give agriculture every assistance in the 
production of necessary, vital foods. It is our responsibility to see 
that the Stat.' service to agriculture is doing all that can be done 
to stimulate normal grout li and progress. 


How many New Year's resolutions have you broken so far? 

Perhaps your answer is "none" because you decided not to try 
any reforms this year on the theory that inevitably most good 
■ Ives fly out tin- window as the New Year flies in. Whatever 
your feelings are Oil the subject, there's one pledge that can he 
endorsed by all students and friends of Massachusetts State Col- 
: throughout 1947 keep working for the Cniversity of Massa- 
chusetts. Pledge your support to the student committee for the 
University of Massachusetts, to the college administration, and 
toall others who are working in its interests. 

Make the resolution now to graduate from the Cniversity of

When you take a G.I. out of the 
Army and thereby relieve his frus- 
trated Initiative, the result is oft- 
times remarkable. 

The State Colle/c at I 'evens pro- 
vides the molt pointed example of 

this, I think. All yoe. have to do is 
spend an entertaining half-hour 
reading their newspaper, "The States- 
man," and you will have your faith 
in the ingenuity of th< 

youth restored. 

The CI, iris (that's the athletic 
elub) have basketball and hockey 
schedules that put ours to shame. 
They play SUCh teams as MIT, Holy 
Cross, Dartmouth, Boston U. and U. 
of N. H. Even their feminine office 
galj are organized into the Devens 
Secretaries -- the hoop squad won 
their opening game with Groton 
belles 12-11 (clo.-e!). 

The Vets College will have a cam- 
pus radio service before long, when 

broadcasts of a strength to cover 

only the school area will originate 
in the studios of station WFDM in 
Worcester House. Programs will in- 
clude news, music, sports, lectures, 
etc. It seems the vets haven't for- 
gotten the relaxing "music on a-ax 
for nil sad socks" programs* that 
Aimed Forces Iladio dished out to 
the lads in their foxholes overseas. 

Some enterprising veterans have 
formed themselves into organiza- 
tions to provide incomes to augment 
their subsistence allowances. One of 
these is a Huhy Sitter* Club which 
offers qualified services for 50 cents 
per hour. The other organization is 
the Campus Cab Company, which 
ferries students on campus and to 
the surrounding towns at minimum 
rates. Their slug line is: 'Grow Old 
Gracefully — Ride a Campus Cab!" 

Other organizations on campus 
which we found of interest include 
a Rod and Gun Club and an AVC 
chapter, the latter boasting the mot- 
to: "Citizens First — Veterans Sec- 

And there you have it. . . .a bunch 
of vets get together and start with 
a bare minimum; yet within a short 
three months have organized them- 
selves into a community which might 
well cause the rest of us, who take 
for granted the benefits of an 85 
year old institution, to look around 
and see what things need to be done 

to put our house in order.

Coach Derby of the track team ha 

also expressed Worry over the dearth

ning events. However, in the dual 
meets later in the season even if 

State won all its running evenl i o 

pttt up a spectacular showing in 

them, it could not win meets unless 
it made at least a fair showing in 
the field events, which it can't do 
without candidal. 

Competition for the mile relay 

quartet to race in Boston Garden 

.January 2-> and February H is keen. 
Among the can iidates are Louie 
Clough, foremost runner on State

The man who edits his college paper traditionally enjoys a po- 
sition unique in his college family. Secure in his office stronghold, 
twelve feet scarcely denting the mess of papers on his desk, he 
es hack in his swivel chair and harks orders to his trembling 
staff President and Dean stand in his presence; professors ap- 
provingly grant him unlimited cuts and forward reams of hidden 
news matt-rial; students, awed by his power and consumed with 
desire to join his staff, strew verbal rosebuds in his path and 
salaam when he deigns to accept their company. The man who 
edits his college paper is the BMOC, a BTO Girls swoon for one 
condescending glance. He is IT! 

Well, hen- I am. a girl editor, and after a year of trying to plant 
my size sixes on the desk and always landing on my head when 
my swivel chair tips over, 1 have come to the conclusion that this 
idyllic picture is a hunk of baloney. If my staff has trembled, it's I 

- n from coffee nerves. The unlimited cuts are a delightful dream 
overshadowed by the more substantial memory of incompleted | 
assignments and flunked quizzes; and the reams of hidden news | 
material must still be locked in some archives. My power, it 
ms, has been the kind that arouses little more than a lusty 
bronx cheer; while the verbal rosebuds strewing my path have | 

sen of the shouted "there goes the (Jod-all-mighty editor" or 
ominously whispered "that's the co-ed who speaks" variety. Re- 
ports indicate that I may be a BMOC meaning (Biggest Mouth 
On Campus), or IT (spoken in tones that mean you wouldn't touch 
it with a ten foot pole). Since this is the last issue of the Collegian 
I shall edit before stepping into the role of a has-been, I wish to up- 
hold my lovely reputation to the last and go out shooting off my 
mouth in my customary manner. 

If there is a role requiring more tact and patience than the post 
"f Collegian editor, I should like to see it. When people slip illegibly

A startling revelation resulted 

from a recent perusal of the Colle- 
gian constitution, when it was dis- 
covered that women have illegally 
held the office of Kditor-iii-chief 

during past years. 

The constitution states that "the 
Editor-in-chief shall he a representa- 
tive of the highest class on th*- hoard, 
provided that suitable men are avail- 
shle in that class." 

Tin remainder of the section lists 
the various duties of the Editor, and 
where each ex officio position is out- 
lined, the sentence begins with a 
cryptic He — which leaves no doubt 
in anyone's mind about the sex of 
the individual in question. 

Despite the biased attitude of this 
Bible of Collegian conduct, there have 
been three women in the course of 
our newspaper's history on this 
campus whose journalistic abilities 
so out-shone those of their trousered 
colleagues that they were ehosen to

will act as representative of the

work of this committee will be ap-

time next summer. This organization 
fur which the students at the Chicago 
Conference feel there is a definite 
seed is to be founded on the com- 
mon needs and desires of all Amer- 
ican Students. These needs and de- 
are clearly defined in the pre- 
amble of the conference aims as "the

Procedure token <it oonftrona 

At the conference the country was 
divided into :{0 divisions each di- 
vision electing a chairman who will 
be the division representative on the 
National Continuations Committee. 
These 30 representatives were elected 
at regional caucuses. The repre- 
sentative (dected from this region is 
Herriam Haskell from Smith College. 
The National Student organizations 
were allowed to have representation 
of ten per cent or three representa- 
tives on the NCC executive council. 

The tasks of the NCC shall be to 
■el a date at which time the NSO 
will be formally launched. This com- 
mittee will also draw up a draft con- 
stitution based upon decisions of the 
Chicago Student Conference, plan 
the December conference and raise 
funds to carry on these activities. 
The publicity for the organization 
will also be taken care of by the NCC. 
The 475 delegates at the confer- 
• were divided into four panel 
groups. One panel group discussed 
the organization and duties of the 
NCC. The second group discussed the 
organization of the prospective NSO. 
Included in this discussion were the 
relationships that shall exist between 
the existing national student organ- 

ons, student councils, unorgan- 
ized student youth bodies and na- 
tional youth organizations, and the 
relationship of the NSO to its con- 

ent bodies. The problem of the 
third group was to discuss students 
and responsibilities in interna- 
tional student affairs. The fourth 
group was a panel to discuss the 
aims and activities of the proposed

The first establishment of nation- 
al and international student organ- 
izations began on November 10th, 
194. r >, when a student's meeting was 
held in London sponsored by the Rrit- 
ish National Union of students, who 
took advantage of the fact that many 
students from different countries 
were gathered in London at that 
time to attend the World Youth Con- 
ference. The purpose of the Student's 
meeting was to make arrangements 
for the World Student Congress in 
Prague during the summer of 1946. 
From November 17th to 23rd, five 
hundred students from fifty-one 
countries celebrated International 
Student's day at Prague at the in- 
vitation of the National Union of 
Czech Students. This Conference pro- 
vided a unique opportunity for stu- 
dents from all over the world to 
discuss participation during the war 
and students needs and rights that 
have emerged in the postwar era. 
Those assembled felt the urgent ne- 
cessity for closer cooperation be- 
tween students of different count lies 
so that these needs could l»e met. 
This organization, International Pre 
paratory Committee, endorsed the 
calling of the World Student Con- 
gress in the summer of 1946 at which 
an international organization of stu- 
dents could he set up. 

Upon their return to the United 
States, the three United States mem- 
bers of the International Prepara- 
tory Committee impressed upon 
American student organizations the 
urgency of obtaining a strong Amer- 
ican delegation to the World Student 
Congress at Prague. An American 
Preparatory Committee for the 
World student Congress was get up 
composed of representatives from 
National Intercollegiate organiza- 
tions and religious groups. 

After numerous meetings through- 
out the Spring of H)4f», the Ameri- 
can Preparatory Committee was able 
to report that the American delega- 
tion to Prague would consist of twen- 
ty-five delegates. Fifteen of the dele- 
gates represented nine national stu- 
dent organizations, ten of the stu- 
dents came from strategically lo- 
cated colleges and universities in ten 
regions of the country. 

W r ith student representatives from 
thirty-eight countries, the American 
j delegates set up an International 
Union of Students through which 
students all over the world could 
work together to solve student prob- 
lems of the post-war era. 

The American delegation impressed 
by the fact that almost every 
country in the world has a national 
union of students through which the 
Congress delegates can work to carry 
out the program of the IUS, made 
plans for initiating steps in this 
country toward the formation of an 
American National Union of stu- 
dents. An American Preparatory 
Committee in cooperation with the 
American delegation sponsored the 
Chicago Student Conference.

Small Army, Short 
War, Asserts Wendt 

Warning that the next war would 
begin and end within one hour, Dr. 

Gerald Wendt tonight sdvoeated an 

army of 10,000 technicians, on the 
job at all times. 

Speaking at Massachusetts state 

College, Dr. Wendt, Editorial Direr 

tor of Soionee lUuotrated, and former 

Science Editor of Tinu magazine, 
pointed out that by 1950, ''accurate,

bombs could traverse the ocean U> 
their military targets within one 

"The first objective of the .•nemy," 
he asserted, "will l>e our stockpiles 
of atomic Ixmihs and our installations 
for launching them. Only were the 
United States then not to capitu- 
late," he continued, "would the ag- 
gressor bomb our cities." 

Elaborating on his general theme 
"What's New in Science", Dr. Wendt 
Stated that atomic energy for power 
use would not lie an actuality for at 
least 25 years because 1 > an engine 
has not yet been const meted to con- 
<ert atomic energy to power; '2) the 
est (now $10(1,(100 per pound) 
would be prohibitive until it was re- 
duce I to $10,000 pei- pound. 

"Only then," he continued, "could 
atomic power for commercial use 

compete with coal economically." 
Concerning the third reason fatal 
radiation he said, "We shall not be 

able tn eombal I he de * ruci i •■ ■••"■

'Undoubtedly, this will not !»■ be-

The coach came up to Murphy and 

shook him down a peg. 
In no uncertain words he told him, 

"Better shake a leg. 
Your dribbling is most miserable and 

you've missed 'bout every shot, 
If it's first squad that you're want- 
ing, you must improve a lot. 
I hate to say it, Murphy, but you're 

getting worse and worse 
So if it's first squad that you're 

wanting, better rid yourself of 
the curse. 
Women, drinking, smoking are to 

The type, quantity, the brand I need 

not name. 
You're wind is gone, you're always 

That's from women, drinking, smok- 
So if it's first squad that you're 

Better rid yourself of the curse." 
Murphy listened thoughtfully and 

sl6wly shook his head 
With evil glare and determined stress 

this is what he said, 
"I've played my best for many a year 

and still you've wanted more 
I played my heart out constantly — 

from head to foot I'm sore 
I hate to say it, coachy, but you're 

never satisfied 
So even if I'm out this year, believe 

vou me I tried, 
I'm thirty-two years old now— going 

on thirty-three 
Six years in the army made this 

wreck of me. 
So, coach, I quit now — my sporting 

days are through. 
Back to my women, drinking, smok- 
ing — that carefree life I knew."

State Bombers Win 
Over Palmer A.C. 

A newly-organized group of hoop- 
men on campus known as the State 
Bombers made an impressive debut 
last Monday evening at Palmer by 
downing the Palmer A. C, 57-41, 
after coming from behind in the sec- 
ond half. The losers led at the end 
of the first half, 21-19, but suc- 
cumbed in the final two stanzas to 
the suddenly rejuvenated, fast-break- 
ing attack of the Bombers. 

The leading scorers for the Bomb- 
ers were Red Richardson with 1C 
points, Jim Gringras with a dozen

Two Massachusetts State College 
students are among the 10 winners 
of the Boston Glohe's $1000 World 
War II Memorial Fellowships, it was 
announced last week. 

Selected from 080 New Kngland 
college candidates, the two State Col 
lege men who will receive the fellow- 
ships for a year of study and travel 
in the Western Hemisphere are: 

Robert K. Bertram, 24, a student of 
horticulture, class of 1949, 

Leonard Jay Horwitz, 21, a student 
of history and government, class of 

Other colleges who had winning 
candidates were Boston University, 
Bowdoin, Emmanuel, Pembroke at 
Brown University, Radclitfe, Welles- 
ley, and Wesleyan. Only one cithct 
New Kngland college produced two 
winning candidates. 

Asked for comment by the The

Prexy Sees Growth 
In Final Report 

A new period of expansion at 
Massachusetts State College was pre 
dieted last week by President Hugh 
1". Baker in his last annual report 
on the collet,.. |i,. Maker, who re- 
tires after fourteen years as presi- 
dent this dune, made the report to 
the trustees in Boston. 

Citing the growth of the State Col 
lege during his administration from 
a small school into a "middle-sized 

eollege", and the current expansion 

of the school to meet the needs of 
veterans, the report stressed the need 
for enlarging engineering facilities at 
Amherst so that veterans in the 
freshman class at Amherst and Fort 
1 "evens can complete their upper 
(dass college work, and to meet a per 

nianeiit need of Massachusetts high 
school graduates in the future. 

"Every year since l!>."<.'i," Dr. Mak- 
er told the trustees, "the freshman: 
(dass at the college has been limited 
drastically. The result 'if this has 
been that the college has turned away 
literally thousands of Massachusetts 
boys and girls whose only opportu- 
nity for a college experience was at 
the state college." 

"Now that the college has opened 
its doors as widely as possibile to re- 
turning veterans," he continued, "the 
Commonwealth must recognise the 
needs of the college and provide 
funds to take care of an increasing 
student body." Today there are more 
than 2000 students at Amherst, most- 
ly veterans, and approximately 1600 
at Fort Devens. 

Citing the "hard and yet SUCC4 
ful work" which resulted in the set 
ting up of the Devens College, the 
report declared that "great credit Is

The Collegian regrets that in its 
last issue the lead story in the engi- 
neering building hearing contained an 
error involving a mere $8000. Rep. 
Horace T. Applington's bill called for 
an expenditure of $1,500,000, and 
not $1,508,000. The Collegian's State 
House reporter, Da:io Politella, filed 
an accurate story with the Western 
Union in Boston after the hearing 
ended. Unfortunately the Western 
Union operator hit the "8" key by 
mistake, and the copyeditor who 
handled the story failed to check this 
figure. Hereafter the Collegian will 
list its copyecfitors, and if you find 
any mistakes of grammar or accu- 
racy in the news columns, they are 
the persons to blame.

Previous to this election, candi-

of their fraternity affiliations or 
their independent status. Personal 
prejudices, fraternity politics wen- 
often the governing factors in select-

This situation is also maintained 
in class elections and the example 
established by the Senate can and

as well.

At the low point in the Great De- 
pression February 1988 — a new 
president came to our campus. 

During the arduous fourteen years 
that Dr. Hugh P. Baker has headed 
the College, he has guided it through 
many trying experiences, exclaimed 
by the war years and the overflow 
enrollment that followed. In those 
years, he saw the institution double 
in size with the addition of many 
new courses and several million dol- 

number of petitions. No person 
should sign his name to more peti- 
tions than positions available in the 
Senate for his class. 

But if methods of nomination are 
considered, one should also consider 
the actual people who are to be elect- 
ed. Should the Senate elections be 
mere popularity contests; or should 
men be selected who have ideas, who 
are willing to devote time and effort, 
who are capable of managing the stu- 
dent government of MSC? 

Laying no particular criticism on 
athletes, just because a man is one 
of the best football players in the 
college does not make him the most 
suitable man for the Senate. 

Let everyone think this question 
through and arrive at a decision that 
maintains Senate elections are not 
contests of popularity, but of ability.

Heading Massachusetts State Col- 
lege and carrying on the battle for 
its needs are tasks that would weigh 
heavily on two men. It is no surprise 
that these responsibilities have se- 
riously taxed President Baker's 
health, and have necessitated a real 
rest. We send our warmest greetings 
to President Baker in Florida. 

Dear Editor: 

The recent election of officers for 
the class of I960 was held on Febru- 
ary sixth in Bowker Auditorium. In 
the opinion of the writers of the ar- 
ticle, the campus politic! displayed at 
this convocation may be likened to 
the political wrangle and controversy 
in Georgia at the present time. The 
election was a complete farce. 

Nominees for office were selected 
from among those present by a choice 
of one person, and the nomination 
was seconded by a discordant rumble 
and gales of laughter. Analyzing the 
situation, the candidates for office 
were nominated by about one-sixth of 
true per cent of the total student body

The selection of a new head COach

at MSC. The Collegian Editor would 
like to make a definite statement on 
the subject. The man who is consid- 
ered for the position should be able 

to make his men work hard at the 
arduous chore of football practice; 
he must make them obey commands; 
he should have the ability to inspire 
these men to fight hard and win or

is quite enough to discourage even

or not the idiosyncrasies evident at

direct result of the students' realiz- 
ation of the fallacy or whether the 
freshman students are so immature 
that they do not appreciate the priv- 
ilege of voting is an issue which 
should and must be decided in the 

facility. From there it goes to the 
Ways and Means Committee where 
our Sen. Nolen will have a chance to 
give it a friendly lift. 

MSC has for too long been an or-

concerned. Its appeals time and again

to open the eyes of our fellow stu-

That two of our students were

Globe Fellowships is an achievement 
that reflects credit upon the ability 
of the student body and the profi- 
ciency of the faculty. 

Our pride would not be justified 
if it were based only 0:1 the fact that 
two of our number were awarded a 
high honor in a highly competitive 
contest. The Globe Fellowships were 
conceived Bl a memorial "which 
would work towards averting anoth- 

er war by encouraging international 

good will." 

The memorial is a tribute that 
seeks to eliminate some of the caus- 
es of conflict between nations, and 
at the sari" time, it aims to be "of 
direct benefit to the generation that 
did most of the fighting in the war."

of the Campus Varities, to be held 
in Bowker Auditorium on March 21. 
This function is sponsored jointly by 
Isogon and Adelphia. 

The producers and directors of the 
1!»17 edition of Campus Varieties are 
Wally Kallauvher, '4'.», and George 
Burgess. '49. The former directed and 
Staged a 90-man variety show, which 
toured Saipan in 1944, This was in 
addition to his other duties in the 
T.'trd Wing, 20th Air Force. 

His partner in this venture, a for- 
mer Cottegiam reporter, director of 
the winning Freshman play in 1942, 
and an actor in the second place soph- 
omore play this year, directed many 
camp-wide, radio shows, while a Ca-

Say Kallauirher and Binges; 
"This epic will undoubtedly set 8 
new style in undergraduate produc

York City, what "Call Me Mister" 
is doing for Boston,— the Campus 
Varieties Of 1947 will do for Mass.

MSC Hoopmen Win; 
Upset Clark, Devens 

•Red" Ball Makes Debut 
Mass. States' downtrodden basket- 
ball quintet, still In quest o! their 
initial triumph of the season, trav- 
eled to Worcester to tangle with 

Clark University, l" * bitterly eon- 
tested battle which saw the lead 
Changs hands more than once the 

Maroon and White emerged at the 
long end of a 49-47 score. 

It was a great victory to a team 
which had just lost its coach and a 
greal tribute to the ability of Coach 
"Red" Hall, who was coaching his 
first game this season as MSC bas- 
ketball mentor. 

A shadow of gloom, however, was 
cast over the victory as two starting 
players were injured in the contest. 
Stan Waskiewiez was sidelined with 
a serious knee injury and high scor- 
ing Ed McCrath also went out with 
a leg injury. It looks doubtful if either 
of the boys will see much, if any, more 
basketball this season. 

MSC, 49— Ft. Devens, 44 

Coach '-Red" Rail did it again as 
Mass. State's Five made it two in a 
row for "Red". A vastly improved 
and polished team took the floor 
■gainst Devens before a home crowd 
to the tune of a 49-44 victory. The 
score belies the superiority of our 
boys over our brother students from 
Ayer. Mass. The Statesmen never 
lost the lead from start to finish and 
were always in complete control of 
the situation. 

Big nuns in the attack were Fred 
Richardson with 18 points, and ''Tilt" 
Myers and Ray Knceland with 13 
and 12 points respectively. 

The spark is lit. Hamilton Collet- 
is next! 


Front Row: Fred Richardnon, Stan Waskiewiez, Ray Kneeland (Capt.), Ed 
McGrath, Hy Myers, and Coach "Red" Rail. Back Row: "Mike" Atlas, 
"Hatch" Hall, Fred Masterson, Ray O'Neil, 6U Santin, and Hal Ostman.

State Swim Team 
Meets B. U. Tonight 

The MSC swimmers plunge into 
action against a visiting Hoston Uni- 
versity team tonight at 7:00 p.m. 
State has defeated Worcester Tech, 
50-25, iti its only game thus far. B.U. 
has also beaten W.l'.I., but was de- 
feated by Tufts. 

Coach Joe Rogers is handicapped 
by the recent loss of Ken Gorman, an 
outstanding back-st roker who also 

swam for MSC in 1942. However. 
this loss may be compensated for 
Kill Iiyan, a transfer student f 
Ohio State. 

Others ;hat can be expected to 
action are Joe Chumra, a tab- 
diver who gained honors in the \ 
England A.A.U. meet last year, K

Hargesheimer Leaves Mass. State; 
Tommy Eck May Be His Successor 

hit of bombshell was exploded 
into our laps when an Associ* 
1'iess release from Oklahoma 
■ unced that Walter Hargesheimer 
leaving his position as head foot- 
arid basketball coach at MSC in 
er to become assistant football 
h at the University of Oklahoma. 

Wi Auk "Why?"— 

When interviewed, Hargesheimer 
;ained that this was his opportu- 
to "get into the big time" and 
he is to receive a larger salary 
issistant football coach at Okla- 
a than he has been receiving as 
: football and basketball coach at 
Massachusetts State College. Not 
,! Curry Hicks, head of the athlet- 
.. -partment, could disagree. Hicks 
rutted that Hargesheimer was not 
I sufficiently here to warrant his 
oing down this opportunity. "If 
art fortunate enough to get a 
rj man,*' Hicks stated, "«•<• are mi- 
ni i, to hold Mm." 

inch a situation exists, and ob- 
viously it does, would it not be bene- 
to all if it were corrected? 
Higher wages will bring MSC more 
ti^e and be a definite aid in our 
drive to be com e the University of 
Massachusetts. Thinking and acting 
iil -time makes one small-time. As 
long as these inadequacies exist, it 
will be almost impossible to progress 
infficiently w as to meet the require- 
ment* for a State University. 

Sorry to Leave — 

The following statement was given 
exclusively to the Collegian by Har- 
Keimer: "I regret very much leav- 
ing State at this time, but tkia oppor- 
lunity almost make* it imperative, I 
want to Bipiese my appreciation to 
the students and faculty for their co- 
*» ration which has made my stay 
here very pleasant. I want to extend 
my sincere wishes for the best of 

success for State College athletics." 
Successor — 

Speculation as to who is to sneered 
Hargesheimer as head football coach 
was in evidence throughout the cam- 
pus. Members of the football team 
and Others connected with athletics 
here, were of the opinion that Tommy 
Eck, present assistant coach in foot- 
ball and basketball, is the most de- 
serving and most likely to succeed to 
the post of head football coach. 

Hargesheimer himself spoke highly 
of Tommy Eck. and remarked that,

Stoekbridge Loses to Mt Uormem 


The Stoekbridge Basketball Team 

suffered its fourth defeat of the year 
at the hands of Mt. Herman School 
by a score of 47-40. The Ramp was 
played on Saturday afternoon, Feb. 8, 
in the MSC cape. 

The Stoekbridge team started fast 
and at half time led .31-29. At the be- 
ginning of the second half the Mt. 
Herman team scored four quick bas- 
ketl which proved to be the margin 
of victory. A fast-tiring Stoekbridge 
team could not overtake this lead 
despite fine offensive plays by Scott 
and Black, and defensive play by 
Leppaniemi and Waas. This was the 
fourth loss of the year compared with 
two wins.

and it deserves eveyone's enthusias-

about fifteen dollars. 

Fifteen dollars is a lot of money more -

that all who can will contribute 

Let's give until it hurts, and 

queta and Briekbata, asking for 
brickbats about the Collegian in 
particular", here goes. 

It seems to me that the Collegi- 
an's sports policy needs to be reno- 
vated. In your story on page five 
(which once was the sports page), 
the writer asks "why" in regards 
to the question of higher salaries 
for our varsity coaches. Leaving the 
pay question to others, I do not want 
to quote the senence in he same arti- 
cle, "Thinking and acting small- 
time makes one small-time." It 
seems that the Collegian, the voice 
of the student body, should clean 
its house of "small-time" sports re- 
porting before it can rightfully at- 
tack the college athletic policy for 
being small-time. Surely the Colle- 
gian can do more boosting of the 
varsity teams than it has this year, 
by giving proper credit to coaches 
and players where credit is due. 

As an example of what I mean, 
take a look at page five following 
this "liig squawk*' about coaching 
salaries. You give seven lines, seven 
great big lines, to the team cap 
tains for next fall. These men must 
have played hard and worked hard 
to get to captain their teams. Aside 
from the personal satisfaction of 
playing s game and playing it well, 
teeing their names in an occasional 
sports write-up is p'ohahly all that 
the players get out of two or three 
years of participation. Yet you 
don't even give them that! 

Everyone likes to see his name 
in print, with possibly a picture on 
special occasions. I think the Colle- 
gian could afford four cuts of these 
team captains — Stan Waskiewicz. 
football; Joe Magri, soccer; Bill 
Howes and Louie Clough, cross- 
country. And they would be avail- 
able for next fall's game stories. 

Why not turn page five over to 
your sports editor, let him plan his 
page, secure his cuts, and have a 
good sports page with only sports 
on it. Consider last week's sports 
section. A continued story from 
page one has no place at the top 
of page five, and a flower grower's 
meeting is hardly sports in the 
strictest sense of the word. And 
then have the business manager 
plan his advertising to give the 
sports editor a little more than half 
of page five! 

I know that it's tough on an ed- 
itor to have someone ''climb on his 
back" after putting out only one 
issue, because I was in your shoes 
once myself. But I hope these 
"brickbats" will prove to be of the 
constructive variety, so that State 
can hit the "big-time" in student 
sports reporting anyway!

All these theories may now be dte-

From Other Editorial Pages 

In last week's issue of the Collegian to insure that the veterans now stud- 
we reprinted an editorial from the llol- 
yoke Transcript pointing out tin- need 
of expanding the engineering program 
to meet the needs of veterans and fu- 
ture high school graduates. Below are 

the comments of the Boston Trav- 
eler of Jan. 21 on this problem. Roth 
editorials have appeared after the 
newspaper stories of the engineering 
bill hearing were published. 

To the Editor: 

Only seven lines on sports cap- 

Last Tuesday night felt like 1943 
as I was asked to aid the Senate as 
their prexy for a month or so and re- 
establish some pre-war customs and 
proceedings. The purpose of this col- 
umn is to acquaint students with their 
governing body, the Student Senate. 

As of late the Senate has been 
looked upon as a dictatorial power 
appointing committees at random 
without thought of fair representa- 
tion. Actually, the Senate is designed 
to perform more pleasant and usual 
duties, the supervision of student 
elections, the expending of funds from 
a fund provided for it by the men of 
the college, representing the student 
body before the administration, and 
appointing committees. 

The present Senate is attempting 
to strengthen itself from within, a

Deerfield. At suppertime, he is al-

have been arranged thus far. 

The inter-fraternity basketball

There is much talk around

that a varsity player now sets only

phenomenon came from a shrewd

"In a recent interview — , I»ean 
Machmcr stated, 'The administra- 
tive attitude toward liipior remains 
Unchanged; in other words, exces- 
sive use of Intoxicating drinks on 
campus is absolutely forbidden.' 
There was, even before Prohibition, 

a local option vote against the legal 

■ale of liquor in Amherst which has 
protected (yes) for a number of 
years both Mass. State and Am- 
herst Colleges. In addition it was 
noted that nearly every time liquor 
has been known on campus, an 
alumnus has been connected with it. 
The college administration finds it 
difficult to control alumni." 

Let's have a toast all 'round for 
the good old days as thus reported 

in the Collegian of November 23, 

llt.'W; and another for those poor 
debauched alumni: and another.... 

As the paUic attitude toward al- 
coholism in its gentler forms has 
become more tolerant, the students 
of M. S. C. have become involved 
more and more with another vice — 
nicotine. One janitor, Walter Web- 
sterster of Goessmann Lab, remin- 
isces nostalgically about the times 
when no tobacco whatsoever was 
sold on campus; then there were no 

piles of butts to trip the staggering 

and plague the janitors. 

In fact, time was when some youth 
dissipating his bloom stalked into 

North Collese with a ci g arette 

dangling in a nervy manner from his 
lips; the janitor calmly picked him 
up and heaved him bodily through 
the door. Now students cannot even 
hit the butt-cans. Oh well, anyhow, 
janitors can still be jrlad that, with 
the deficient skill in aim which seems 
to be typical of the campus, the cur- 
rent fashion is not chewins tobacco. 

Atomic Fishin' 

by Ralph Fishman 

Listen, Folks, here is my thesis 
Peace in the world 
Or the world in pieces 

— Earl Robinson 

The trend towards innovation is an 
ase-old one, but perhaps its banner 
has never been as star-spangled ami 
new-fangled as it is today. A few 
examples may suffice: Sen satio na l - 
ism 1!>47 style adds vitamins, emits 
samma rays, and travels super-sonic- 
ly. It demands of pen manufacturer:, 
that they give out diving suits with 
every new pen. It gives Rumors a 
third dimension for they no longer 
travel from mouth to mouth — they 
fly. It opens up a new channel for 
women to announce their engagement 
— they jump into a Pond advertise- 
ment. It attacks such age-old dogmas 
as the Tenth Commandment by the 
Freudian approach that to repress 
covetousness is to suppress some con- ' 
fused sexual instinct. 

It is a catchy trend, and I've 
eaught it. The worm turns, and the 
atom is hooked as bait at the end of 
the line. 

Lines are one of the necessary evils 
that culminates a Ions civilizing pro- 
cess. Long before the law of Survival 
of the Fittest was passed in 18. r >9, 
only the fit, fat, and fastest were 
catered to, while the weak, weaker, 
and most studious were merely given 
food for thought. Rut as the Theory 
of Fthics "a .'5 credit course) evolved 
into its present form, the queue came 
into its own. Even now at MSC the 
age of aWserrf is not forgotten as 
any coed who has lined up on a cold 
morning at the book store can attest. 
However, there is one situation worse 
than beins at the end of a very Ions 
line, and that is beins at the end of 
a very Ions wrong line. 

One plan that is pursuing the right 
line is the present campaign for the 

University of Massachusetts. Stu- 
dents are converting this project into 
a proj ec tile to be shot into the astis- 
matic public eye.

A rejuvenated M.s.c. basketball 

team climaxed the Winter Carnival 
weekend by defeating Hamilton 
College in a closely fought tilt, 49- 
•!»'>, Saturday night. 

It was a nip-and-tuck battle to the 
very end. State was the first to 
score but the greatly improved 
Hamilton team soon went ahead by- 
three points. At the half, after hav- 
ing both regained and lost slight 
edges on many occasions, State 
trailed 25-84. 

Midway during the third period, 

a margin of five points in favor of 
Hamilton was registered on the 

scoreboard. However, State's three 

stalwarts, Richardson, Myers, and 
Kneeland, who scored eleven, ten, 
and ten, points respectively, 

displayed a persistence both offen- 
sively and defensively which nar 
rowed that margin in the last pe 
riod by three points. It was then 
that Hal Ostman and Jim MacDon- 
ald were substituted as forwards 
for Myers ami Richardson. State 

went ahead 43- W, and maintained 
this lead after the two starting for 

j wards were sent hack into the 

During the entire second half, 
Tank, the Hamilton center, was lim-

Dr. Goldberg Urges 
Inter Group Accord 

"The American community 11 
justified in looking to its education- 
al agencies for vigorous effort on 
behalf of thai intergroup under- 
standing, good will and cooperation 
without which the general well-beinj? 
is jeopardized," asserted Dr. Max- 
well II. Goldberg, professor of 1 
lish at Maasachu etl State College, 
at a in. • 'I in Pittafield 

by the Council on Community Rela- 
t that city. 

Addressing an audience which in- 
cluded prominent social, professional, 
and civic leaders, and speaking on 
the subject "Education and Commu- 
nity Relations", Professor Goldberg 
added: "School teachers, administra- 
te s, and other educational officials, 
on the other hand, are justified in 
equally vigorous effort on behalf of 
tragically needed educational im- 
provements that have been so sadly 
neglected and that are so sorely 


Elaborating, the speaker said: "The 

community should get maximum civ- 
ic achievement from its teachers and 

educational administrators. It should 
secure from them both enthusiastic 
and efficient service on hehalf of 

communal harmony and the funda- 
ments! values of American democ- 

Specifically, Professor Goldberg 
observed that "if the community is 
to gain from its educators insistent 
and reformed resistance to the Anti- 
American efforts of those who would 
put chasms of hatred between vari- 
ous (dements of our communities. 
and who would destroy our communal 
and national well-being, then the 
the community must see to it that, 
in terms of salary, teaching load, and 
Other conditions of professional serv-

educational system undergoes thor-

impressions to present a typical 
scene : 

Setting: Seven p.m. 

Scene: IMA SOROK-FRAT House 

Two chaperoning couples enter 
IMA. Someone yells, "They're here. 
Duck it." Deep silence pervades the 
room. Icy stares greet their stealthy 
entrance. A few perfunctory greet- 
ings and clammy handshakes ensue, 
and then they are nonchalantly but 
firmly led to their corner stalls where 
a bridge table is set up. 

Two decks of cards, a pencil, a 
score pad, and a box of "choice 
candy" are quickly provided, "Your 
deal", snaps a social chairman to one 
of the group, then stomps away pat- 
ting himself or herself on the back. 
His or her function has successfully 
been completed. 

Chaperones, however, deplore this 
attitude. They consider themselves 
normal human beings who like to let 
their hair down and enjoy themselves 
in the presence of young people 
whose company they enjoy, since 
they chose the teaching profession.

Devens Senate Members 
To Visit MSC Saturday 

Twelve members of the Devena stu- 
dent senate have been invited to 
visit Amherst this coming weekend, 
it was announced by Miss Bents Car- 
roll '4!>, a member of the MSC stu- 
dent committee for a C. and Mass. 

On Feb. l!> Miss Carroll, Brad Mor- 
ton, Mike Donohue, Miss Peg Par- 
sons, Ed prewniak, and Miss Polly- 
riper attended a meeting of the Sev- 
ens student senate- and urged the 
students to back Senate Bill 207 for 
a U. of Mass. 

Adequate upper-class facilities will 

be provided all Deveni students J 

either at M.S.C. at Amherst or Dev- 
ens, or at private colleges, and 
M.S.C. has consulted 13 colleges in 
Massachusetts to determine facilities 
for the Devens students. 

This was announced at the Ways 

and Means Committee hearing last 
week by Dr. Van Meter, acting pres- 
ident, and Dr. Leonard Carmiehael, 

trustee of M.S.C. at Amherst and 

Coder the law setting up the Dev- 
ens school no student can be admitted 
after September, li*47, but all stu- 
dents are assured a degree from 
Massachusetts State College. 

Dr. Van Meter told a Collegian 
reporter after the hearing that h" 
was certain facilities would be pro 
vided the Devens students either by 
private colleges or the State College 
at Amherst or Devens. 

"What we are trying to do, of 
course, is provide the best educational 
facilities possible at the lowest long- 
run expense to the State," the acting 
president declared. 

"The Devens students are an out- 
standing group, and naturally we 
would be glad to have all of them at 
Amherst," Dr. Van Meter said, "but 
we do not wish to recommend addi- 
tional accommodations at Amherst if 
any other colleges can provide ade- 
quate facilities. 

"Tuition is not a problem for vet- 
erans, although many prefer a state 
college because living expenses are 
low. I feel the Devens men should 

have the opportunity of choosing any 

college to Complete their uppei class 
work, and we have sought and will 
continue to seek this opportunity for 

Although the Ways and Means 
committee hearing was the first pub 
lie announcement that M.S.C. has 
consulted other Colleges, the Devens 
students have- previously been as- 
sured that Upper-class facilities will 

be provided for them. A statement to 

this effect from Vice- President Hod-

Seeking to meet Gov. Bradford's request that Massachusetts State College 
accommodate additional veterans and high school graduates next year and 
still not put up any new buildings, College spokesmen outlined a $200,000 
temporary substitute for the proposed 11,500,000 engineering building at a 
legislative hearing last week. 

The 1200,000 program, which 
would provide two wooden buildings

Dear Editor: 

The following criticism represents 
only an indirect "brickbat" aimed at 
the Collegian. It concerns the paper's 
coverage (or the lack of it) of the 
past interfraternity basketball tour- 
nament and the JV basketball team. 

Both types of competition, al- 
though not appreciably measuring up 
to full varsity standards, neverthe- 
less had many arduous performers 
who showed creditable skills. Yet, 
the Collegian, in the past, refrained 
from mentioning even a minimum 
amount of news about the various 
teams and their players. Why? Do 
only the "stars" receive top billing 
in the Collegian, the so-called rep- 
resentative of the student body? 

Not being a fraternity man nor a 
member of any JV team, I can truth- 
fully state that I was not actively in- 
fluenced by members of either group 
to write this article. Rather, it is 
evident that there has been a lack 
not only on sports, but on other ac- 
of justice on the Collegian's part — 
tivities as well.

Just one zero out of the way. Sure- 
ly the Collegian can be a little more

about the new dorms, stating that

that the cost of all alumni-built with W.S.G.A. appointees. Joe Masi,

Recreation Committee. The jukebox 
in the Memorial Hall Lounge nets 
about $12 per week; $80 is in the 
treasurer's office in the name of the 
recreation committee. With the ap- 
proval of the W.S.G.A. and Senate, 
$25 has hpen contributed to the War

The Senate received 21 sophomores 
and 9 junior petitions for the Senate. 
Four of these sophomores and three 
juniors wll be elected to the Senate, by 
their respective classes. A discussion 
followed, on the relative merits of 
both the petition and nomination com- 
mittee systems of nominating candi- 
dates for office. A discussion was post- 
poned until after elections. 

It was voted to appoint six men

More Permanent Facilities Needed 

We suppose there may be some 
legislators who just want to play 
politics with veterans. But despite

We would like to see all Devens gals — there are about as many vet- 
students who wish to be graduates of j erans at Amherst as at Devens, and

the State had to invest money in Dev-

reflection of the insufficient develop-

For centuries this enigma ha>

A student once remarked that 
social life at MSC was comparable 
to a mixture of gases. There art 
some molecules attracted to each oth-

an equilibrium of molecules together.

In addition to chairman Martlet; ,

er Robert D. Hawley, Secretary 
James Burke, Engineering Professor

Fred Cole, Dr. Edward Hiwlnett, vice 
president of M. S. C. and head of the 
I >evens College, and Dr. Ralph Van 
Meter, acting president. 

Presents Analysts 
Tr e as u rer Hawley presented to the 

Ways and Means Committee a three- 
page analysis of the $200,000 tempo- 
rary engineering program, in which 
it was pointed out that there are 11:: 
engineering majors at Amherst and 
540 at Devens. It was estimated that 
275 of the Devens .students will be 
ready for upper-class engineering 
work in February 1948, depending 
upon the number of Devens students 

who do not take summer school work. 

More than half of the $.'{07,000 
worth of the needed engineering e- 
quipment is already available at Am- 
herst, Mr. Hawley said, and it is ex- 
pected that much of the remainder 
can be acquired from war surplus. 

Pointing out the advantage to M. 
S. C. in having the lievens students, 
and the advantage to the Dcveni stu- 
dents in completing their college ex- 
perience at s well-rounded and inex- 
pensive eollege, Mr. Hawley present- 
ed the following four reasons for ex- 
panding engineering at Amherst: 

"1. Civil and General Engineering 
has been taught at Amherst for 
many years and there is an opera! 

ing curriculum with adequate sup- 

portlng courses in Physical and Hi- 
ological Sciences and Liberal Arts. 
"2. Moth veteran! and civilian stu 
dents can be instructed at Amherst 
and Civilian demand is certain to con- 
tinue after veterans have completed 
their training. 

"•':. Any investment for engineer* 
ing education should be made at Am- 
herst where it can have permanent

In summarizing his report, Mc- 
Clelland staled: "It seems to pro- 
vide ample evidence that the \., | 

bine practice and theory, and the ma|,,,it y ,,f »•» and women embrsc 

applications of metallurgy to engi- 
neering. There is possibility that a 
course in welding may be incorporated 
in the program. 

"1. It is doubtful that effective 
Engineering training can be given at 
DeveiU in PUS regardless of funds 
provided and effort made. Essential 
. equipment probably cannot be se- 
cured, adequate chemical and physics 
laboratories and facilities are not a 
vailable and qualified teachers very 
difficult to find. Teachers will be 
more readily attracted to a perma- 
nent institution and the students are 
certain to gain much more from their 
training in an older established in- 

UrgSS Permanent Huilding 

Prof. Maiston asserted that it was 
doubtful if any temporary engineer- 
ing program at lievens could be ar 
credited. He urged a permanent 
building as the best solution for pro 

viding adequately for the veterans 

in the next few years, and to •'meet 
the need of Massachusetts youth for 

low-cost engineering training." 
A permanent engineering building 

at M. S. C. has been endorsed by the 
Augmented Beard of Trustees for 
Devens, the joint Committee on Agri- 
culture, Senator Ralph C. Mahar, 
chairman of the Education Commit- 
tee, Pep. Howard B. Driscoll of Hol- 
yoke, Vice-President Hodnett, lead- 
ers of the Farm Bureau Federation, 
trade unions, American Legion and 
other groups. (Collegian Jan. 17)

work seriously, but apparently h

Collegian Cartoonist 
Drew For Navy Paper 

William (Jaylonl, whose cartoon 
illustrated tin "Married or Bingte" 

feature in the last edition of the Col- 
lejriaja, began this type of drawing 
as a hobby while he was still in high 

After entering the service he con- 
tinued drawing cartoons for his 
ship's paper, and later contributed 
more of his work to his squadron's 
history. Now that he is a civilian 
again, the Collegian is happy to 
share his cartoons with its readers, 
and hopes that it will be able to pre- 
sent more in future issues.

utes of the time of each couple, dur- 
ing the course of the evening, to come 
in, introduce themselves, say a few 
words, and see that the chaperones 
are enjoying themselves. Chaperones 
are people, too. Make the best of the 
situation which demands chaperonea 
and include them in the spirit of the 

The Collegian isn't recommending 
any set of hard and fast rules and 
regulations to follow. It is merely 
pointing out the need for serious 
thought by fraternities and soror- 
ities on the subject of chaperoning. 

Some general comments and obser- 
vations noted by the Collegian dur- 
ing the survey were: "If the house 
finds difficulty securing chaperones, 
it may be because all faculty mem- 
bers are carrying an extremely 
heavy schedule.".... 

"Rather than the houses doing the 
chaperones an honor and a favor by 
the invitation, the chaperones are 
making a sacrifice in coming.".... 

Provide Baby Sitters 

"If the chaperoning couple has a 
baby, the house should provide a 
•baby sitter' or possibly a couple 
from the party." Then came the 
thought, who is going to chaperone 
the couple?. . . . 

"If the affair is formal, the house 
should provide corsages for .he chap- 
eroning women.". . . . 

"If the chaperones do not have 
transportation, the house should 
provide it.". . . . 

"The president of the house and a 
social chairman should make them- 
selves known, ami provide the re- 
freshment needed without the chap- 
eiones asking for it.".... 

Mr. Helming, chairman of the 
Committee on Student Life points 
out that the chaperones have indi- 
cated better treatment this year than 
ever before. The main complaint is: 
"Chaperones do not feel us though 
then are in the party at all." 

Rather than offer a solution, the 
Collegian is open to suggestions 
through the Bouquets and Brickbats 

Lou Clough, Track Star 

by II. Goldberg 

To those of you who frequent the 
Cage on any afternoon between the 
hours of 3-5, the sight of a small 
blond fellow catapulting around the 
track is not unusual. Yes, he is Louie 
Clough, co-captain elect of State's 
('ross Country team. 

Louie, however, does not confine 
himself to cross-country running. 
His most recent accomplishments 
were breaking the college record and 
tying the Cage record by doing the 
880 yd. run in 2 minutes 3 seconds 
against Amherst, besides winning the 
mile run and anchoring the relay 
team on the same night. This one- 
man track team also broke the col- 
lege record and tied the Cage record 
by running the 440 in 54.2 seconds 
on Winter Carnival weekend against 

Winning track events is no novelty 
for Louie. He was a Western Massa- 
chusetts champ at Greenfield High 
where he lost only one race in the 
last two years of his High School 
career. Yet, Coach Derby has to look 


twice to find Lou because of his quiet 
retiring manner. 

Louie is an Army Air Corps vet- 
eran. He spent the majority of his 
(overseas time in the Italian theater. 
! As a bombardier, Louie also gained 
j the distinction of holding a 1st. 
j Lieut's commission at the tender age 
[of 19 years. 

To those who saw him anchor our 
j relay team in the B.A.A. in Boston 

and bring us a first place there was 
jno doubt that he was State's answer 
jto Gil Dodds and not too far off 

at that.

Standing next to a peanut vending 
machine in Amherst, his mouth full 
of peanuts, a fellow remarked the 
other day that he had heard a 70 meter 
ski jump had been erected in Quebec. 
As you know, the largest jump in this 
country is 60 meters. He claimed that 
skiers just coasting over the takeoff 
attained distances well over 200 feet. 
Look for new records well over 300 
feet when Mark Landon and Warren 
Anderson exert themselves to out- 
jump, out-distance, and out-fly even | 
the birds themselves. 

Don't miss the Holy Cross-Spring- 
field College basketball basketball 
game at the Coliseum in Springfield, 
Friday night. Holy Cross should win \ 
by an easy 15 points. However, don't 
count Springfield out as they recently 
knocked Trinity College from the 
unbeaten circles.

was State's road trip to Norwich and 

Incidentally, Ray O'Neil damajruj 
his face again during last weekend's 
trip. He was standing under the h *jp 
in a pre-game drill when Joe "Silent* 
the Crowd" Masterson came running 
in for a basket. The result — three rr.urj 
stitches for big Ray! 

The spring baseball trip is definite- 
ly cancelled for this year but prosp m, 
are bright for next season. Team* 
willing to play State next year are 
Georgetown University, U. of Mary- 
land, U. of Richmond, Western Mar;. 
land, l'. of Delaware, and Johns Hop. 

New basketball uniforms are pr «. 
ised for next year. Sturdy ones are 
needed to last State for at least 
twenty years. 

When the basketball floor at the 
cage is ripped up in March, it should 
be burned. The dead space on thai 
floor this past year was terrific.

The Trash Barrel 

By Arthur Hurt mm, 


One <>f the beat things about a 
fraternity is its social life. Here at 
MSC, every fraternity holds ■ dance 
at leait onee a month. Let us today 
look in upon the Sigma Omega Lamb- 
da botue on a Saturday afternoon. 

The hoys are preparing for ■ 
dance to be held that night. For 

thro- hours they decorate the room 
to the beet of their ability. The ceil- 
fog is alive with streamers, and on 
the wall is the fraternity crest sur- 
mounted by the fraternity initials 


The scene shifts to Saturday night. 
The couples enter the house and start 
the evening by greeting the chaper- 


"- Er, I don't believe I know your 
name, sir." 

"I'm Dr. Carriage. This is my 
wife, Mrs. Carriage, and over there 
is my daughter, Miss Carriage." 

"Glad to know you, sir. I'm Rob 
Fein. This is my girl, Axon Den- 
drite. Axon is a neurology major. 
Well, I hear music. The dance must 
Ik- going on, so we'll leave now." 

Locking the door behind them, Bob 
and Axon leave the happy chaperones 
and go into the dance. As they enter 
the room, they stop short — they 
can't see the beautiful decorations. 
In fact, they can't see a thing — the 
room is pitch black. 

For some time they dance. Then 
I{(»b puts both arms around Axon,

This Is Your Newspaper 

When u new editor inherits the 
Collegian, some people might want 
to know what the new policy of the 
paper, if any, will he. There will not 
he any change of editorial policy, hut 
rather we will try to define in more 
detail exactly how the Collegian 
stands on various issues which con- 
front the campus. 

No student newspaper can be any 
better than the student body it re- 
flects. <>ne way of expressing the 
n sponsihiliFy" of the ColUgiwn is to 
say that we hope to reflect the stu- 
dent body so well, that your news- 
paper will not be a reflection on the 
students or the college. 

Bui while a college newspaper re- 
flects the morale of its publishers, 

the student body, it in turn affects 
that morale. The Collegian' a function 
is to present accurate and unbiased 
news of events iii the college com- 
munity, provide S valuable educa- 
tional activity for its staff, serve as 
a central source of information, and 
finally, act as an instrument effect- 
ing liaison between students and fac- 
ulty, as well as establishing a link 
between the cloistered halls of learn- 
ing and the uncertain world outsi.'e. 

Orchids And Onions 
Because the student newspaper is 

published by the BtttdeiUs, the Colli - 
gian will continue to encourage crit- 
ical letters to the editor. Such letters 
may deal with any subject (the more 
varied the better) as long as the 
laws of libel and pood taste are not 

No brickbats appear in this issue, 
however, because the Colli ijiitii has 
apparently reached such a degree of 
perfection that no complaints can be 

conjured up. Let's hope that this will 
arouse someone, somewhere to start 
heaving them again. 

The U. Of ML 

The Collegian is behind a name 
change for this institution. We feel 
that the name "university" connotes 
more than "college" to most people, 
and would be more appropriate to 
our school because of its breadth of 

In addition, the Collegian favors 
expansion here in Amherst, whether 
or not the name is college or univer- 

We appreciate the expansion prob- 
lems of the State, but low-cost higher 
education has been neglected too long 
in Massachusetts, and the govern- 
ment faces a new problem because of 
the (;.I. Bill of Rights and the in- 
creasing trend toward college educa- 

We are the only hope of higher 
education for the youth of this state 
who need low-cost facilities. 

As we pointed out last week, the 
past legislature voted funds for 
permanent buildings, despite the crit- 
ical building shortages, which will 
not exist this coming year. That 
buildings can be built even during a 
period of shortages is proved by the 
$500,000 worth of dormitories which 
were recently completed by the 
Alumni Building Corporation. 

As we go to press we receive wel- 
come support for an expanded engi- 
neering program at Amherst to ac- 
commodate veterans studying at both 
I 'evens and Amherst from President 
Conant of Harvard, co-chairman of 
the expanded board which has juris- 
diction over Fort Devens College. 

Senate Bill 207 

There has been considerable dis- 
cussion on the campus concerning 
the decision of the MSC Student 
Committee for the University of 
Massachusetts to support Senate 
Bill 207 which calls only for chang- 
ing the name of the college to the 
University of Massachusetts. This 
bill, introduced by Senator Ralph C. 
Mahar of Orange at the request of 
students and alumni, makes DO pro- 
vision for expansion, an omission 
that has caused some dispute. 

One of the reasons that Senator 

Mahar gave for introducing a bill 

that ilocs not call for additional ap- 
propriations (Collegian, Jan. 10) 
was that 'any bill involving expan- 
sion must be judged on its own mer- 
and would lie so judged whether 
the name is college or university." 

les declaring its support for 
Bill 207 (Collegian, Feb. n 
• tdent committee also 
nounced that it will back "any bill 

that is currently before the legisla- 
ture calling for normal expansion of 
needed facilities at the college." 

The Collegian whole-heartedly en- 
dorse* these stands. We recognise 
the need for additional expenditures 
at MSC if the state is to meet its 
educational obligations to veterans 
and future high school graduates, 
but we do not believe that the prob- 
li m of expansion should be confused 
with the fact that, because of its 
broad curriculum and high stand- 
ards, the college could more appro- 
priately be called a university. 

Composed of seven schools and 
three divisions, including a graduate 
school that offers courses leading to 
Master of Science and Doctor of 
Philosophy degrees. Massachusetts 
State College is today far more a 
university than many others that 
were created in this state by legis- 
lative action.

"Morituri Te Salutamus" 

(Translation: More light, less Heat.) 
Between the spoken or printed 
word and its real meaning, on the 
one hand, and its interpretation, on 
the other, there may, and often does 
exist, considerable variation. An e- 
<|iial variation applies in the inter- 
pretation of facts. In the light of 
these generally recognized circum- 
stances, the Colli '.tin >i wishes to ex- 
amine an editorial, and other mate- 
rial, which appeared last week in 
the Statesman, the Devens student 

An editorial, entitled MmiXmi 7V 
Salutanuu, is notably outspoken in 
condemnation of "opposition to our 
college" which, the editorial says, 
has arisen largely at Massachusetts 
State College at Amherst. The Col- 
legion does not necessarily wish to 
dispute these claims. The Collegian 
does, however, wish to indicate that 
the evidence which the Statesman 
advances in support of the charge is 
capable of at least one other inter- 
pretation, and probably more 


Prof. Frank P. Rand, appearing 
before the Special Recess Commission 
on Education at the State House last 
December, "announced his college's 
arbitrary decsion to forego its prom- 
ise to the veterans now at Devens, 
and those who will wish to enter in 
coming years," says the Statesman, 
in support of its claim. 

"Mr. Rand said," the editorial con- 
tinued, " 'In February of 1948 as 
many of these Fort Devens men as 
can be accommodated will be trans- 
ferred to Amherst; the others will 
presumably be out of luck' ". 

Collegian readers who remember 
Prof. Rand's statement will recall 
that he was at the time speaking 
particularly of facilities for engi- 
neering students. Unless additional 
facilities are supplied at Amherst, 
or are found to exist at other Mass- 
achusetts colleges, engineering maj- 
ors over and above the quota which 
can be accommodated under existing 
facilities, or those which will be pro- 
vided, are assuredly "out of luck". 

Prof. Rand was pointing out a few 
months ago the very problem that 
now is surprising some Devens stu- 
dents, and was urging the adequate 
facilities \yhich became a concern of 
these students. Neither Prof. Rand 
nor Acting Pies. Van Meter can or- 
der the construction of a new engi- 
neering building if the state legisla- 
ture is net in complete agreement. 


Elsewhere, the editorial says: ".. 
. .Certain short-sighted people at 
Amherst ....selfishly and mistaken- 
ly fear that by our very existence 
we are depriving them of further ap- 

propriations." In rebuttal, a similar 
charge might be leveled at the Dev- 
ens faculty, many of whom will be 
forced to seek employment elsewhere 
should Devens be closed. The Col- 
legimn dues not wish to advance this 
charge, because at best it is based 
upon opinion, and can not be substan- 
tiated. We seek only to acquaint the 
Statesman with the danger of such 
unsupported claims. 

A further example of such danger 
appears in a Statesman column 
Signed by Charles V. Plumer, saying: 
"At this moment we have a higher 
scholastic rating than Massachusetts 
State College at Amherst." 

The CoUegiau does not understand 
clearly Columnist Plumer's use of the 
term "scholastic rating", believing 

that the excellence of a school is de- 
termined by the achievements of its 
that Devens students receive consid- 
eration equal to that received by Am- 
herst students in the mater of trans- 
fer credits, and that, further, de- 
crees which accrue from study at 
Amherst, or at the Devens branch, 
will carry the same academic weight, 
since both institutions are under the 
same governing head. The academic 
; rating of the State College has been 
extended to the Devens branch. 


Believing most sincerely in the 
right of Devens students to have 
their complaints heard, the Colleyian 
feels nevertheless, that the blame for 
any delay and uncertainty as Devens 
i students now detect in relation to 
their academic future may be as 
easily shifted to the state legislature, 
as it may be laid upon what the 
St at ism an implies are reactionary 
forces at Amherst. The struggle for 
enlargement of facilities at Amherst 
has been a long one; past state leg- 
islatures have been slow to respond 
to obvious needs; and the new stim- 
ulus to these needs provided by Dev- 
ens students has simply brought to 
the surface a past neglect. 

Still another possibilty is that there 
never has been any uncertainty as to 
whether upperclass facilities will be 
provided the Devens students. The cur- 
rent problem may well be simply the 
problem of providing the BEST edu- 
cational facilities — a problem on which 
educators could he better informed

Although it admits itself to be as 
poweidess in the true settlement of 

such a question as is the Statesman, 

the Collei/iitin nevertheless trusts that 
not even certain small groups in the 
state which the Statesman feels sure 
are on the "gravy train", and are 
thus opposed to the continuation of 
the Devens branch, will allow such 
commendable aspirations toward ed- 
ucation to go down to otter desola-

years, according to a bulletin re- 
leased February, 1984 by the Asso- 
ciate Alumni of the college. Together 
with such aids as scholarships, which 
appeared in the second year of the 
college, the total tuition amounted 
to very little. 

In 1883 the tuition fee was dropped 
completely and it was not until 1926 
that the Board of Trustees were 
again troubled with the problem. 
Then, as a result of outside pressure 
to increase the college income, it was 
agreed to charge residents of the 
state $C.O per year. This was a rate 
believed to be low enough to work 
little or BO hardships on the students. 

In 1933 further pressure was ex- 
erted on the board for an increase 
to $10(1 for state students ami $220 
for non-residents of Massachusetts. 
In 1934, the bulletin reported our tui- 
tion rate was 8284E8 higher than the 
average of all the state colleges in the 

United states.

Collegian Supplies News 
To Many State Papers 

The Collegian is busy supplying 
frontpage copy for New England's 

prominent newspapers, as evidenced 

by recent stories appearing in Bos- 
ton dailies 

John G. Harris, in the January 19 
issue of the Boston Sunday Globe, 
mentioned the Collegian in a story 

pertaining to problems of Devens' 
vets. He wrote, "In a recent issue 

of the college paper, The Maawaehu- 
eetta Collegian, the editors gave top 
billing to a story ahout Senator

But what club could possibly have

Tag Day 

Before long "Tag" day was an- 
nounced. Every student was proud 
to appear on campus with a red tag 
urging: "(Jet out in FRONT and 
BACK the U. of Mass." The com- 
mittee announced an overall gain of 
$271 from the sale of the tags which 
were purchased for 25 cents each. 

With this money, supplies were ob- 
tained. Letters were sent to every 
magazine and radio station in the 
country which might be interested 
in the story of the students' efforts 
in becoming a university. Radio pro- 
grams were planned by the radio 
committee. Representatives of the 
steering committee were sent to Fort

veteran students there. Arrange-

Norbert, Theta Chi German Shepherd,

Norbert was born in Kassel, G r -

him and had him shipped to this 
country from Lellavre. He arrived in 
this college in September as a shy 
dog who felt very insecure in an at 
mosphere of boisterously re-union ng 
fraternity men. He slowly learned to 
know each of the thirty-two men in 
Theta Chi and formed many ouU:u> 
acquaintances too. In the evenings h*

as to drop pencils have seen Norben

Occasionally Norbert's grip on a

war, and in lunging for a better hold, 
he catches someone's finger. However, 
enthusiasm rather than malice ooti-

so that when he does collect a finger 
in his gyrations, he is very crestfallen 
to regard the bloody stump. As yet

"While the costs are comparable, 
I should maintain that from an edu-

of Amherst is no real alternative," 

Dr. Conant continued. 

He stressed that expansion at Am- the missing members,

"improve the Commonwealth's facili-

For the first eleven minutes when

on their winning ways again, but any 
illusions were quickly dispelled by ■ 

spoils for the Collegian. When I ' u,a >' iina was responsible for its sue 

thought about this for awhile, I cam. 
to the conclusion that I was either 
perfectly oblivious to what was 
around me, or that there were just 
no women sports on campus, for I 
did not know where to start. 

I went to Miss Totman's office to 
inquire on the subject. She referre I 
me to Mrs. Gaskell with the net re- 
sult that I had seen almost the entire 
l'hys Ed department and no one 
could tell me about women's ■porta. 
All that was going on were inter- 
sorority and inter-house basketball 
games- and this was the extent of 
women's activities. 

It seems too bad that a college 
with the hopes of becoming a uni- 
versity does not have the desire or 
facilities to have their women stu- 
dents compet e in outside athletic 
activities. True, there is a Women' 
Athletic Association which to me is 
group of women students elected as 
officers. For seldom do you see or 
hear of women's sports. 

To my mind this is all wrong. 
Spoils provide fun and relaxation; 
it breeds fair play and sportsman- 
ship; it aids mental and physical ' 
development. There's nothing that

with a win over No. Adams State

f ought 47-40 victory. Stoekbridge 
then lost two straight to Mass. Mari-

the way, Stoekbridge finally coming

Text Of Dr. Conant's Speech 

I am coming before this Committee 
to endorse the recommendations of the 
Board of Trustees of the Massachu- 
setts State College for the enlarge- 
ment of facilities to accommodate stu- 
dents now enrolled at Fort Devens 
College who would be moved to Am- 
herst for the last two years of their 
college course. 

First, a word or two of history. 
Last June Governor Tobin asked me 
to be chairman of a committee of 
college presidents which he assembled 
to consider the whole problem of the 
State's providing special facilities for 
the education of veterans. The origi- 
nal conversations between the college 
presidents and some of the State of- 
ficials revolved around a tentative 
proposal that a two-year course at 
Fort Devens might be established 
without any definite decision being 
made as to how the students would ob- 
tain their last two years of instruction. 

Many of us felt that it would be 
most unfortunate for the State to 
embark on an educational enterprise 
unless we could envisage clearly 
how the whole four-year course could 
be handled on a satisfactory basis. We 
felt that the students who were en- 
rolled at Fort Devens and who main- 
tained satisfactory records should be 
guaranteed a complete college course 
by the State. It is my understanding 
that that commitment has been made 
by the State in establish ng Fort Dev- 
ens College and arranging for its in- 
corporation into the framework of the 
Massachusetts State College. 

The committee of which I was chair- 
man recommended that Fort Devens 
be made a part of the Massachusetts 
State College, and under the manage- 
ment of the Trustees of that college, 
for the specific reason that we thus 
provided for a complete college pro- 
gram. In examining the total number 
of students who were potential candi- 
dates for Fort Devens, we were im- 
pressed by the large part who desired 
engineering instruction. We realized 
that that instruction could not be 
given at Fort Devens, we were im- 
large expendiure of money for capital 
plant and the assembling of a very- 
special staff. We canvassed the pos- 
sibility of room in other engineering 
colleges in this state and found there 
was essentially none. 

Therefore we proposed to the 
Trustees of the State College that 
they undertake to accommodate these 
engineering students, in particular, 
for the last two years of their college 
course. We recognized that this would 

mean an expansion of the facilities at 
Amherst and an expenditure of new 
money to be authorized by the Legis- 
lature, and we hoped that this would 
oe done. 

Therefore I come before you today 
to support an expenditure of funds to 
complete the program which the Com- 
mittee of college presidents last June 
' regarded as essential for accommodat- 
ing the veterans at Fort Devens. I 
understand the figures have already 
been presented to you in detail for 
the course of this expansion at Am- 
herst. You likewise have before you a 
proposed alternative, namely the pro- 
vision for engineering instruction for 
a third and fourth college year at 
Fort Devens. I understand further 
that the two costs are comparable 
when one considers that the housing 
of students and staff at Amherst can 
be on a self-liquidating basis. 

While the costs are comparable, 
I should maintain that from an edu- 
cational point of view the expendi- 
ture of funds at Fort Devens instead 
of Amherst is no real alternative. If 
Fort Devens is expanded to take care 
of engineering in the third and fourth 
years, the plant thus created, after 
veterans' education has ceased to be a 
pressing need of the State, will either 
be idle and obsolete or else the Com- 
monwealth will have to support an un- 
satisfactory duplicate of the Massa- 
chusetts State College. It is clearly not 
in the best interests of the education 
of this State to scatter state support 
between any wider variety of institu- 
tions than is necessary. Leaving the 
present emergency out of account, it 
is clear that the expansion of the 
State facilities for giving instruction 
in engineering at Amherst is infinitely 
more desirable than the establishment 
of another separate State college. 

Some of you may have doubts as to 
whether the expansion of facilities at 
Amherst would not result in a plant 
which was too large for the post- 
war needs of this Commonwealth. 
I have no such doubts. I think it is 
clear that for some time Massachu- 
setts State College has had to turn 
away many applicants, and I feel that 
the need for engineering instruction 
in this State will be very large. There- 
fore, it is in the interests of the citi- 
zens of this Commonwealth that the 
State College should be expanded at 
this time. 

I have laid emphasis on the problem 
of providing facilities and staff for 
the engineering students. The ar- 
rangements for this group are the 
most difficult to provide and expensive 
to handle either at Fort Devens or at 

I should point out, of course, that if 
the decision is made, as I hope it will

the Trustees of the State College, all 
the students at Fort Devens, on the

remaining two academic years. 

I think every educator would agree 
that the instruction in these last two 
years can be more effectively given 
in an institution which has been long 
established and has maintained high 
standards than at any ney emergency 
institution no matter how fortunate 
it may have been. 

Praises Dr. Hodnett 

I want to make it plain that in my 
remarks 1 do not in any way wish to 
disparage what has been done at Fort 
Devens. Quite the contrary; from all 
I have learned a very fine job indeed 
has been done by Dr. Hodnett and his 
staff. They are to be congratulated on 
the truly remarkable manner in which 
a staff has been assembled and a col- ) 
lege started. However, it is a much 
m'ore difficult matter to give the last 
two years of college than the first two. 
This is particularly true as regards 
engineering instruction. To give satis- 
factory professional education re- 
quires an organization which has been 
operating smoothly for many years. 

I am frank to say that I think it 
doubtful if the proper standards of in- , 
struction could be maintained through 
a four-year course in engineering in 
an emergency Yeterans' college, even 
by such brilliant and heroic efforts as 
have characterized the work at Fort 
Devens so far. 

Therefore it seems to me there is 
no real alternative before the Legis- 
lature. I believe the State is com- 
mitted to provide a four-year course 
for those who have been enrolled at 
Fort Devens and who continue to do 
satisfactory work. To expand Fort 
Devens and make it into a four-year 
college would be both uneconomical in 
the long run and a very difficult edu- 
cational procedure from the point of 
view of maintaining standards. 

On the other hand, to expand facili- 
ties at Amherst would enable the 
State to fulfill its pledge to these stu- 
dents and at the same time strengthen 
and improve the Commonwealth's fa- 
cilities for advanced education. 

The money invested at Amherst 
would be invested not in an emergency 

but in a long-range program; it wo.dd 
provide a type of collegiate educati n. 
particularly in the area of engin. r . 
ing, the demand for which is cert an 
to continue for many years to come. 

In conclusion, may I say that in i 
dorsing the recommendations of :he 
Trustees of the State College I 
speaking on behalf of a committee of 
the expanded board which has juris- 
diction over Fort Devens ColK 
President Carmichael of Tufts wa.- 
chairman with me of this committee 
and has made a study of the situa 
at Fort Devens and at Amherst; the 
other members are Admiral Cluvenus 
of Worcester Polytechnic Institute 
and President Ells of Northeastern.

In conclusion, Norbert is a ton 
friendly dog and anyone can play with 
him safely if they follow a few simple 
rules; 1. don't pretend you have a 
stick if you haven't; 2. select a long 
enough stick so that there is plenty of 
room for you both to hold on; and 
3. don't scare him by shouting at him 
because it ruins his whole day.

tee in BoatOBi March 10. 

He explained that "expansion was gradual because of two factors: .scarcity 
of materials ami excessive costs." Massachusetts State College, he con-
